This is the future of mobile phones: The Logic Bolt Phone by Logic Wireless
I, as well as many other much more technologically knowledgeable people, have been saying for quite a while that the future of mobile phone system are a couple things. One is flexible circuit boards that allow for devices be much more ergonomically designed (eg on one's arm or what have you), the other is a phone that has the capability as a projector. This will allow for size to shrink while display sizes can be plaster on walls etc. The options are limitless with this; imagine instead of watching that youtube video on your iphone screen, it can be plastered against a wall as if your watching on a big screen. This has the capability to make home computers and televisions obsolete. It is the "atom bomb" of mobile media; the most power in the smallest package. Although it can be easy and frustrating to predict where and when technology will develop, it can also be exciting; and apparently the future is here. Logic Wireless, a company I am unfamiliar with, has just dropped the first cell phone with a built in projector: The Logic Bolt. This little guy is loaded with Powerpoint, Excel, Word etc and can project an image by up to 3000 percent while retaining what appears to be a 'smaller then iPhone' body.
