After reading an interesting article on Adage.com about a man, his iPhone, a birthday party and the future of mobile devices…
The iPhone is clearly resetting consumer expectations about the role, functionality and integration of devices, and other brands are moving in a similar direction. At the end of the day, we need to understand where the puck is moving. – Pete Blackshaw Adage.com
…we got to thinking: what future mobile device capabilities would we like to see?
- An application that does our laundry.
- A phone that does the talking for you. This would come in really handy when friends call for a late-night complaining session.
- Cooking capabilities. Think about it—what if your phone could whip up a delicious plate of chicken cacciatore for you!?
In all seriousness, we’d love to have a forward function for text messaging. That’s probably more reasonable.
