Now that the dust has settled around the iPhone 4, arguably the most hotly discussed and talked about smartphone in smartphone-history, it is time to ponder over the iPhone 5. Will it shoot lasers? Will it be able to bend the space-time continuum? Will it finally cure cancer? Good questions, those.
So I sat down on my toilet seat (cause that’s where I think best) and pondered over what the truly next-generation of smartphones will do. And all that I had in mind was, well, this image:
My mind couldn’t go further than a faster processor, thinner body, bigger display, better camera, louder speakers and Super Multi-Touch™ (you know, just when two fingers aren’t enough).
What truly new features – other than just evolutionary step-ups – can we get? The last smartphone revolution was in 2007 when Apple introduced the iPhone to a thoroughly enthusiastic audience. When will the next revolution be?
I guess that’s really up to Steve Jobs and his minions at One Infinite Loop to figure out.
