The Mobile World Congress showed once again the trends in mobile computing but it is doubtful that “bigger, faster, more” is what is needed.On the other hand, HD resolution (1280 x 720) is marvelous, as this is what what users are accustomed to from HD TV screens.There might be reasons for a 5′ screen on a mobile phone (Samsung Gallaxy Note) beyond watching TV while commuting. If I was a game fanatic a Quadcore Chip (Optimus 4X HD, 1,5 GHz)certainly would improve my life. A camera lens that allows capturing 41 MP images will certainly, say in artistic hands (these or those …. and David doing polaroid and also iphone/ipad paintings and then of cousrse the classic drawings by Colombo), let us see the world differently. Yet, that is not how the technology is communicated – it is the mere technological possibility that is advertised …. it would be so much better if the show is indeed a spectacle but with experiential and usability depth. Though I am glad to see that some predictions from the past actually came true, in particular with respect to tools that allow me to alter captured data on the spot.
