The Future of the Mobile Phone

Nils Rydbeck, former Ericsson phone designer and inventor of GSM outlines four different scenarios for the future of the mobile phone:

1. The phone contains everything that you have at home in your computer.

2. The phone becomes an entertainment and gaming device for youth, possibly with a display showing the person you’re talking to.

3. The phone carries everything that you have in your pocket.

4. The phone is just a phone.

He’s more inclined towards number 3.
