What could be the next invention in Mobile phones?
The battery issue is going to be vital for the successful implementation of 3.5G and 4G. That's right, the third generation isn't the end of the road, by any means. Mobile phone operators, networks and manufacturers are already looking ahead to the rolling of out of the next waves. And what can you expect there? Well, your mobile will be able to do many of the things you can now achieve online with your computer, including purchasing items and paying for them, with the phone acting as a wallet. There are even discussions about Sykpe-enabled cell phones (Skype is the leading VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, service that allowed you to make phone calls using your computer). 4G should also bring truly smooth video transmission, even better than you'll find with 3G, and probably as good as "real" television something a few believe will be the killer app for 4G. By the time you're really comfortable with 3G it'll be out of date. And how soon will that be?
