TI has announced their next generation dual ARM OMAP 5 platform and I just found an ice video directly delivering visual visions of the things to come. I just wanted to share the video clip with my audience.
Even if some of the scenarios might never become as simple to use as shown it is fun to see what is going to be possible soon, if the mobile devices become as powerful as laptops are today.
This will be the next step towards touch devices become the real center of our digital lifes. We will enjoy to control everything directly from our smartphone. Even the big screens, the TVs and we just use it as a smart display. The software apps will have to keep up with the speed of hardware innovations. But they always did in the past and will drive these usage patterns further ahead. It might feel a little bit like having your laptop in the pocket only needing some link to the big screen, may it be wired HDMI or a wireless connection.
So, what will be the drivers at this years MWC?
- Smartphones will go mass market
- the ecosystem and portable OS platform battle will continue
- multi core mobiles get spread to all major brands and
- the tablet flood will continue to swallow the market of announced devices to be available soon
So this years presentations and announcements will be relevant for our coming summertime vacations and we all love to share this vision of more coloured and blinking touch devices being in our hands making our digital life becoming more and more integrated into our day to day experiences. Lots of fun to come, be it videos, photos, games, locations or whatever we might get interested in.
Not to forget, that mobile communications like Facebook recently were driving the political change more than any other medium. But thats another story.
