    I think that eventually our smartphones will contain information about our computers at home, like what programs we have installed. Then we will be able to plug the smartphone directly into a 'shell' of a computer, and then access all our programs from the cloud.

    This way, our smartphones will act kind of like a key that unlocks the use of all our programs wherever we go, then saves our info into the cloud.

    Smartphones, being companion pieces of computers, will always be linked technologically. Smartphones wouldn't be as smart as they are without powerful computers to connect to. The whole idea is that we get to bring a small part of our home computers with us wherever we go, so it's not hard to imagine that in the future we'll have more options as to what we can bring, and where and how we can use it.

    ahhh boy do i remember how cool the zack morris style cell phone was back then!, i went from the original nokia with the green screen and snake!!!, to about 10 razrs to a slvr to a palm pre a few weeks before the 3g release then returned it for that and have had it ever since. i wouldnt call the iphone the 1st smart phone but the amount of everything you can do with it and the numbers of people who create apps and whatnot for it may be a first, in numbers of course.

    Well written.

    Smartphones won't replace PCs, but they can use their information much like a PC, however.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    Good article new guy! Nice to have some new and fresh perspective.....THANK GOD your first article wasn't

    "New Verizon iPhone Rumors"

    Anyways, it's always fun to think about what the future of tech will bring us. The fact that what we are holding in our hands right now seemed like science fiction 10 years ago is really....cool.

    I'm not going to make any predictions, because my predictions could never do the future of tech and the iPhone justice! I just know it's gonna be awesome and amazing! Yet no matter how amazing.. I'm sure we will all still be waiting for "the next JB release"!!

    Hopefully we won't all die in 2012 so we can be around for the evolution of the iPhone! That's reason enough for me to want to be around!

    Our visions of the future now will only change. Visions of this year back in the 80s was way off. So what the future holds will be like it has been as small steps with jumps here and there of new items.

    I am excited what the future holds but I know that we will be paced there in steps not the leaps and bounds as our dreams/visions hope.

    The jumps here and there are the most exicting times of anyone's life during that period. Only to become a memory that pales in comparison later on in life to the next step.

    Good article. However, your statement that "it wasnít really until the iPhone came out that the smartphone evolved into something more than the sum of its parts" is more than a small exaggeration. While I love my iPhone, and I have had all four versions, it would be wrong to imply that the iPhone was the beginning of the smartphone. I happily carried a PocketPC (HP Jornada) and loved it, longing for the day that someone would combine it with a phone, for all of the reasons why we now love the iPhone. My Samsung i700, then the i730 nicely fit that model. But, the sluggishness of the PocketPC (now called Windows Mobile) platform, along with the absurdity of dealing with Verizon's lock-down policy, made jumping to the first iPhone a joy. By the way - for those who can't wait for Verizon to get the iPhone, you may wish you hadn't thought of such a thing. If you think that Apple keeps a tight lock on their phones, just wait until you see how Verizon operates. I can tell you first hand that jailbreaking and using the iPhone is a walk in the park compared to the hacking we used to do with the PocketPC/WM platform on Verizon.

    Exactly. Our visions people had in the past are slightly off.

    I mean the internet concept was originally to be just used by the government and educational institutions. But it slowly made it's way into the general public and today's generation and generations from then now think nothing of the internet and how it came to be or what it changed.

    The phone was a high class bulky item a decade or two ago and it is now in the hands of many, including children. Where communication goes from this point is going to be interesting.

    Great article! Sparked some good responses.
    I agree with Jahooba to an extent. I believe smart phones, pc/macs, television, etc... are all moving to a convergence of sorts. They will all just serve as portals to access your cloud data. Your seeing it more and more, people want access to their data, movies, music, books, even friends. Not some stuff here and other stuff there, some shared, most not compatible with each other. We are like the fat kid in a candy store, we want it all now! I believe you will see more shared formats and more universal protocols that will allow you to access your own personal hoard. Devices like the "eyephone 4000GGG" will simply be your mobile key to your data vault.
    Oh and of course to use as a flash light...

    When did you buy them?

    For iPhone 4 purchases made before July 23, 2010, you must apply no later than August 22, 2010; otherwise, you must apply within 30 days of your iPhone 4 purchase. To qualify for this program, you must purchase your iPhone 4 by September 30, 2010.

    Uuuhhhhh... What was the point of this article? What, exactly, made this news? I have my own imagination and am well aware of the evolution of the mobile phone. If this is bait to get readers' interest for Wednesday's "glimpse into the future," please spare my time and just write the real article. We here at MMI are all about the meat and potatoes. Nice try though...

    Great article !!! The history & future of these devices are very interesting. I remember having a Nokia phone that was heavy like a brick, and texts were $1 a pop. I never imagined sitting a work watch Netflix on my phone, amazing!!!
