Found this interesting post on The Economist through textually.org - thought it would be a nice add to my 'future .. ' journal.
The phone of the future
The article aims to place the cellphone as the “the remote-control for life”.
Apart from that what is interesting to me is a prediction that storage media may improve so much that ... "In a decade's time a typical phone will have enough storage capacity to be able to video its user's entire life... Researchers at Nokia, meanwhile, speculate that within a decade, the cost of storage will have fallen so far that it might be possible to store every piece of music ever recorded in a single chip that could be included in each phone...". Whoa!
The article ends talking about researchers at Motorola already talking about “the device formerly known as the cellphone” :-)
