We've seen a lot of intriguing new phones at this week's Mobile World Congress, including a 7-inch phone/tablet hybrid and the first Firefox phone, but NEC's Medias W may take the cake. Behind the phone's 4.3-inch screen is...a second 4.3 inch screen. Fold them out together and you get a wide-screen that's perfect for watching video  or running two apps side-by-side, something that was previously impossible on Android. It's like having a tablet -- albeit split down the middle -- that's as easy to carry as a phone.
