NewWindows Phone 7 Features
When anyone asks me what the future of computers will look like, I take out my Verizon phone and say, PC’s are going to be this big. Naturally, we will have monitors and keyboards, but the actual PC will be so small that you can carry it in your own shirt pocket.
Well, that future PC is already here. It is the mobile phone device. iPhone or Windows Phone 7, or Android…whatever. The device does what the consumer needs outside of a business setting. That is the key.
Consumers don’t need Access, or Excel, or a Database system; they need communication between and among their friends. Steve Jobs idea to create a communication device attached to a mobile phone was genius. Otherwise, it would have been just another play toy for geeks. But he turned a mobile phone into a computer. With the Apps concept, it showed that if you have a specific program that does one, specific, thing the consumer will buy it. This is a far cry from the portable computer, or laptop. Now the PC can be relegated to it’s appropriate role, that of a business computer.
