"I believe that mobile will be the biggest benefactor in this"

Dude, you should really read up on graphene if you think the biggest benefactor will be smartphones for crying out loud.  Graphene has huge potential for a wide range of uses, from medecine to energy production and storage to thermal management to name just a few.  

People really need to get over this obsession with smartphones.  There's a whole world beyond that little 5 inch screen.

Using tougher materials for devices is important. How often, for example, have we seen a cracked screen? Here's hoping that graphene can help reinforce the strangth of mobile devices.

I believe that mobile will be the biggest benefactor in this.

But one thing to think about is the fact that this may make phones more expensive because of added material costs.

We often talk about a future with throwaway devices. But with these types of materials, I wonder if that will happen at the upper end of smart devices.
