Microsoft Calling

I’m very excited to see MSFT finally rolling out their smartphones; as I’ve stated repeatedly, I see a future w/ a reduced number of mobile peripherals (the few that remain will become more potent) with an emphasis on:

– local environmental sampling (voice/sound, image/video, data, location)

– sampled content processing [tagging, identification, transfer] (see deeje’s write-up of the ideas WE generated while I was at Ofoto)

– ubiquitous connectivity (cdma/wi-fi combo until the eventual cost effectiveness of cdma pushes wifi, gprs, etc into our hazy memories)

– data/information retrieval with local presentation (time/location/receipient/activity sensitive)

– local, p2p and remote synchronization
