Silicon.com reports that the average London commuter carry’s £500 ($1000) worth of electronics with them on their journey to work. It’s easy to see how this all adds up, and I’m often packing a mobile phone, blackberry, ipod and powerbook whenever I travel.
What ever happened to device consolidation most of the above devices functions could be combined and delivered on a smartphone like the Sony Ericsson P900?
Well I used to have a smartphone and for me anyway it is a question of ergonomics, I find it easier to use my blackberry for email and diary/contacts and my SE V800 as a phone because I need to look at the screen of one at talk into the other at the same time.
I’m sure convergence will come but I think we need some far more innovative smartphone designers – roll on the much talked about iPhone from Apple ?
