From the Forums: Where will smartphones be in five years time?

Not a silly question, and one we can speculate endlessly on. In five years time will we see drastic changes in smartphones with capabilities like morphing? Or have we hit a plateau already as one or two suggest in our forums.

Introduction from thread starter

The iPhone has been for about 5 years now. Back in 2007 it was pretty cool, the first proper touch screen phone with proper apps. yes yes i know there were touch screen phones prior, but not like this.

Its 2012 and everything is has a touch screen, 4g is coming the new standard, nfc is still a baby.

So what are you expecting your phone will do in 2017?

i expect Windows Mobile do be doing pretty well, Android as well. RIM should be gone by then , apple should be somewhere in the middle or in third place is the next model isn't a major upgrade. - peacemf

Morphing is a concept that's been on the table for years.

Nokia Morph seems interesting! - http://research.nokia.com/morph - Sulphy

I think we've hit a plateau in phones and will see very little difference 5 years from now. - Growled
