Is This the End of Cell Phones?
Cell phone technology has certainly come a long way since the days when you needed an extra brief case to carry one around with you.
Technology is advancing at such a furious pace, that it seems you no sooner walk through the door with your purchase of the latest cell phone, computer or other technological advancement than it is either outdated, obsolete or just plain old extinct!
So, does that mean that the video phone in its current form is about to replace our trusty old cell phones?
For the moment, I do certainly not believe that this is the case. I can’t guarantee what will happen in the next 5 minutes though, but for the moment I do believe we are safe.
For one thing, the video phone, although very portable must be connected to broadband and an electrical outlet. Both of these restrictions could be overcome by using a battery unit and mobile broadband connection attached to a router powered off the same battery unit. These configurations are available in a briefcase configuration. Sound familiar to the original cell phone?
The cell phone however was designed for remote portable communication. We pop it in everywhere from the pits of deep handbags to pockets and pouches that attach to belts.
I do believe though that as time progresses, we will undoubtedly see the merging of these two technologies in the form of video cell phones. Yes video is available on some cell phones right now, when the phone network can handle the upload speed.
There just seems to be no end to the advances that are being made in technology, and if we can dream it, we can achieve it. But for now, the video phone is in our hands, and changing not only the world of business, but bringing people together in more ways that we could have ever imagined possible.
No “this” is not the end of cell phones, they have their place and use, just like the video phone is carving it’s own place in our lives and the future. Now follow the links and learn more about the future!
