Oh yeah, you can talk on them too

Cell Phones, have evolved so quickly from the late 1990s when they looked like ugly plastic bricks and had sound quality of a computer speaker. Today you can play games, listen to music, watch full motion video, surf the internet, and send text messages and email on these little wonders. Oh yeah, you can talk on them as well. San Diego Union Tribune has a nice feature on the future of cell phones, a very Qualcomm-centric vision of the future. “Two years from now, I don’t think they’re even going to be called phones, but I don’t know what they’re going to be called,” Jeff Belk, senior vice president of marketing for San Diego-based Qualcomm told the Union-Tribune. “A good rule of thumb is that anything you see commercially available in Japan or Korea usually takes between 12 and 24 months before it finds its way to our shores,” Belk said. Well they think downloadable music, television-on-phone, location based services and micro-customization could be big in US in 2005. Talking about LBS, Wave Market has just launched Crunkie which is a location-based group social networking cum blogging application. Oh, looks like we got all the buzzwords in one sentence.
