Russia's YotaPhone to release an LCD/E Ink dual-display phone in Q3 2013

Yota Devices (a spin-off from Russia's Yota telecom) is the company behind E Ink's dual-display (LCD/ E Ink) phone shown at IFA 2012. Back in September E Ink said we should expect such a device in 2013 - and Yota indeed says they will launch it in Q3 2013. Yota currently has a fully working prototype (called the YotaPhone) that has two 4.3" displays, a 720x1280 LCD and a 200 dpi E Ink.

Other features of this interesting phone include a dual-core 1.5Ghz CPU, 2GB of RAM and at least 32 GB of flash memory, LTE and a 12 mp camera. The whole phone weighs just 140 grams and is less than 10 mm thick. Yota says they are already in talks with US and European carriers to launch this phone overseas.
