Experts today predict that the future of mobile is the future of everything. It actually seems plausible that an individual’s mobile phone will become the center of his or her life in terms of technology.
A person’s mobile phone will be with them everywhere, and may eventually be smarter than the individual. Instead of figuring out the answers to ones questions after an individual asks them, it may be able to figure out the questions and answers before a person can even think of them. Scary and cool.
The potential for mobile technologies to change the way we live, work, and play is staggering, and mobile companies today are all too aware that the only way to stay ahead of the curb is attract and convert mobile audiences.
Some trends that rapidly emerged disappeared just as quickly, and some of the most promising trends have taken years to reach maturity.
Mobile technology has transformed our lives in a way that could not have been predicted 20 years ago, and the potential for future developments in mobile phones even over the next 5 years is huge.
Future phones are being touted as the ultimate multifunctional devices. Some experts predict that the mobiles of the future will become remote controls for our whole lives, whereas others forecast that in the future mobile phones will literally run our lives for us.
Whether we realize it or not, our mobile phone is collecting behavioral data about us every second – it’s only a matter of time before the phone can start to predict what you’ll want next.
Future mobile phones will involve transparency and transformability. In other words, this means future mobile phones may be flexible and come in many shapes and forms. The entire mobile phone casing will be a display. This would mean that phone users could look at menus from any angle, including from the back of the phone.
The phones currently use and will continue to develop radio frequencies, silicon microphones, and speed and motion detectors to gather and interpret information. They will also pack thermal detectors, ultraviolet sensors for sun exposure and other super-high-tech features to sense the environment, your heart rate, perspiration, and temperament of the user or even people nearby.
Users will be able to snap apart their phones, and add in additional modules in order to change the way the phone can be used, for example, turning the phone into a GPS enabled belt clip for hiking or stretching the screen for watching a video.
The one thing that seems to stay the same is that people will still use the phone to make calls and send messages.
