3 new things that are going to make your life easier

3 new things that are going to make your life easier

Editor's Note: Epic Tech! HLN is here all week at CES bringing you all the brand new gadgets and amazing innovation from the year's biggest tech show!

Hail a cab. Heat your home. Take lots and lots and lots of pictures of yourself. There's pretty much an unending number of things your phone can do. And now you can add "bend" to that list.

The first flexible phones to hit the U.S. market will start showing off their curves stateside this spring. See? One more reason to look forward to the end of winter right now.

The LG G Flex was introduced Monday morning at a press event here at CES. In addition to just looking really cool, the G Flex has a six-inch screen, 13-megapixel camera and OLED display. It will run Android's deliciously-named Jelly Bean operating system and be available for AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint customers.

The benefits of a curved phone, besides being able to impress your friends? Well, AT&T says its "new visual and ergonomic benefits... enhance the smartphone experience" and "provides an immersive video experience with reduced glare and the unique shape is comfortable in the palm of the hand or against the contour of your face."

Sounds cozy. T-Mobile also notes this very Terminator T-1000 feature: "self-healing paint on the G Flex back cover that LG says is designed to help recover from the wear and tear of daily use." 

Pricing has not yet been announced for the phone. Though perhaps carriers plan to be "flexible" on the cost. Ba-dum.
