Device Thoughts //

The reason it is taking so long for 3gpp video, true MMS, high end multi player games and more ... is the carriers are offering "FREE" devices. These so called giveaways are not in fact giveaways. They lock you into a 2 year contract with a phone the carriers are dying to get rid of. Its simple. You get what you pay for.

Now some argue with why would you want a camera, mp3 player, email, broadcast tv, a personal organizer, and more in a mobile device? Some people think they just want a plain phone. Remember the good old days with cords!

Well lets do the math ... you want to carry 5 different devices, plus a phone with you when you go on vacations? Argue your way out of that one as you fill your fanny pack with electronics.

Technology is meant to simplify our life's so we can do more, communicate more, experience more. No its not to say every one needs headphones on and a crazy Bluetooth device sticking out of their head, but I am over the fact that I am living in a technology driven era. One that will in fact prevail to simplify our complex lifestyles.
