Re: Bendable
@Ashu001 - I remember it as LG who came up with flexible led screens. LG came up with LG Flex smartphone with a curved screen. The prices were quite high at the initial stager but eventually we will see prices going down.

Re: Large Screens
@Ashu001- I think it's high time for smartphone manufacturers to come up with extended power. Quad core and Octa Core processors are draining the battery much quicker.

Re: Large Screens
@Ashu001 – I always prefer devices with large displays but such devices in the market today consume much power than an ordinary smartphone. This is one reason why I feel an ordinary mobile phone would help you do the basics.

@Shamika – Today a smartphone is a device we can't live without; carrying a smartphone will keep you connected to the world.

Re: Large Screens
I agree. Since most of them are used to the mobile apps it's becoming more popular. However as you said they have a choice.

Re: Bendable
@Ashu001,

It was the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, which had a curved edge that would behave as a separate/complementary display.

The fact that it didn't caused much buzzed aside from making some headlines is a good indicator that it wasn't well received, mostly because it had a priced tag that would rival most high end consumer tablets/laptops.

I'm not sure if this was more of an experiment, or a really bad hit or miss. Google is known for providing experimental products (the google glass being a well known one), so not sure if this was the same thing for samsung.

But we have to admit that the concept of having a separate yet embedded display to allow for additional functionality is a pretty cool concept, but guess will need to wait and see who's able to really deliver it

Re: Large Screens
@Ashu001,

To add to your comment, the level of adoption that smartphones and tablets has achieved is mainly having everyone embrace technology.

I mean think about.... today we see people wait in line for days for the latest iteration of an Ipad/Iphone/Samsung phone.... before this would only occur either for a concert or blackfriday deals...consumers want technology, even though they probably don't understand it's intrincacies, but don't really need to.

Technology is both satisfaying and creating needs, and business have strategies heavily reliant on them. This was not the case less then 10 years ago.

Re: Bendable
@David,

Bendable technoogy will definitly open the same level of doors and paths (if not more) as tablets and smartphone have. Not sure because of the availability of the technolgoy, but it's potential use.

"App" is the word

"Beyond 200"
Excellent Article!!!!

 

I'm sure some of you remember the Discovery Channel show "Beyond 2000", where they showed case technology that is the common place of today.

Microsoft's previous video about how the future would be was also "fututuristic" when it came out the first time, only now some of the concepts it presented are ocurring today (with today's tablets and smartphoen and the array of apps are in the center)

How far are we from the video are we? Honestly...a couple of years... from at least seing the first versions of the technollogy shown. We're already seeing curved displayes, so getting to flexible screens is not that far ahead.

Today's technology is progressing at a rate much much faster than say 20 years ago, and I think the main cause of such pace is because of our ability to community at a global scale in an instant. A person can post a video of a discovery which will be viewed in a matter of seconds by many around the world, only to provide another idea to someone else.
