Sony Mobile to Unveil New High-End Phones on January 15 – Reports.
What is this complete change in the office world you speak of? Most of us have moved on to smartphones 4-5 years ago but we still need laptops/desktops for actual work. That's not even talking about designers, musicians or people who make movies, etc. All of them still use laptops/desktops.
The only people who can get away with a smartphone/tablet are those who don't do any real computer work, like a dentist, physical therapist, nurse, doctor, firefighter, etc.
Are you going to make a presentation to the board of directors on a smartphone?
Are you going to make notes for your law case on a tablet?
Are you going to create a new marketing campaign on those devices?
Are you going to write a business proposal for a multi-million dollar deal for a client on a tablet?
Are you going to value a billion dollar company for M&A transaction by creating an excel model on your tablet?
Are you going to design a new website for a large multi-million dollar company to generate millions of extra hits?
Not a chance. Smartphones/tablets are augmenting laptops/desktops for appointment/meeting reminders, calender notes, GPS when you are going to a client site, etc. They are not replacing laptops/desktops as actual productivity devices in the office.
When I can plug my smartphone into a dock and it can power a 30 inch 2560x1600 display, while not chocking on a 200 page Excel document with thousands of formulas, then we can start talking about a real change in how smartphones can replace real PCs at the office.
Finding a sensible phone is getting even harder.
First died keyboards and good operating systems(maemo/meego), now doing are phones that can fit into pocket.
