    Thanks for posting the quote. That reality won't tone down the hype machine or deter the billion blogs on the subject. :muted:

    Idk. Certainly this article is the peak of bedroom boring reading. Another article on the shape of smartphones, when there has been so little change since the introduction of 4 wheels on a car? Now there is something to complain about.

    Or the fact that Apple comes out with new designs on a two year cycle and the 'S' series is incremental?

    Must have been a slow news day.

    @viewfly: Well, unless you're talking about flying cars like in Back To The Future, I'm not sure how you can radically modify the chassis. In that comparison, I have no problem with the ever-improving chips and internals of phones. I have a problem with the external design and interface. That has become very commonplace. After-market "launchers" try to give users the choice of interfaces. Still, I want to see the Youm devices Samsung promised 2 years ago. In that respect, I do agree with the writer's observation that we are "seeing incremental updates that leave us flat."

    Youm or wheel-less cars. It's the same thing. The technology is not ready to meet the real world. Think Samsung got Youm confused with Hokum

    Agreed. Or even hocus pokus, vaporware, and empty promises.

    Idk. I think once we turned from numeric keyboard phones to large readable and usable displays, the shape is pretty much fixed. Throw in that it should fit into a pants pocket, and viola!

    What's to complain about?

    The most useful form of a book or written word is flat and rectangular.

    @viewfly, et al: How about a paper-thin, napkin shaped (or even a handkerchief-thick) device that is malleable, foldable? How about fake shirt cuffs that are actually comm devices? How about taking Google glass to the "next level" and making it whole-lens virtual vision that can also work as sunglasses or corrective lens glasses? I'm not talking future tech, all of those are here as prototypes. I just want to see them progress. But then, so does everyone else.
