The Emperor has no clothes on.

Apple is developing their own curved screen for the iPhone, the same way Samsung and LG are doing on their devices, says Bloomberg News Nov. 10.

Tech analyst Jeff Kagan asks, why?

“I have one thing to say about this whole curved screen business. What’s the point? Doesn't anyone see that the Emperor has no clothes on?” asks Principal analyst Jeff Kagan.

"We have been hearing so much about the coming curved screen. We now have the first curved screen on Samsung devices and soon on Apple devices. That means curved screens are potentially the hottest think in mobile this year."

“One question. Why? What's the point?” asks Kagan.

Phone makers like Samsung and Apple are not talking about what these curved screens will do for the user. Just that they will offer them. "So what's the point? These are innovative, sure. But I simply don't get it.” Asks Kagan.

"Perhaps they should spend more time and money educating the marketplace on the value of the curved screen and why it is better than the traditional screen, which everyone is happy with." Says Kagan.

“Maybe then it would make sense. Until then however, I think this is a definite case of the Emperor having no clothes on, but people are afraid to say anything. Imagine that,” says Kagan.
