Mobile = PC

Nice post by Sadgopalan

Engadget reports that both Gates and Microsoft CTO Craig J. Mundie talked up the idea of a specially designed smartphone that could be connected to a TV and keyboard, turning it into a full-fledged computer. Mundie highlighted that everyone is going to have a cellphone. Come to think of it, the cell phone is the platform as against the laptop – the no. of cellphones exceed the number of laptops, potentially at about two billion people with each other.

Philip Greenspun was amongst the early proponents of the idea of making mobile phones as home computers. Evidence this can work: Millions of Japanese consumers whose only home computing device is an iMode phone, providing them with text messaging, Web pages, and various social and commercial services.
