As tough as it is to predict what innovations and advancements might take place in the future, there are certainly general trends to follow. In our current global economic troubles, there’s no doubt that many development budgets have been cut in half, or cut completely until things start to turn around.
Sony Ericsson has made some predictions on where things are going. In a document that I’ve posted above, you’ll notice Sony Ericsson is making some bold predictions about the mobile device in 2012. The predictions noted above include:
- Digital Cameras to go to 12-20 megapixels
- Video Cameras to have full HD resolution
- Screen resolutions to go XGA (1024×768)
- CPU’s to hit 1GHz
- Internet connections to reach LTE 100+ Mbps
Now wouldn’t all those features be top shelf? A 1GHz processor in my mobile device… Yeah, I could see myself blazing around the internet, downloading way too much music and email… All from wherever I happen to be. Sounds not bad. In fact, if my phone could simply download music to my cerebral cortex, and I could tap on the left side of my head to play, and right side of my head to pause/stop, that would be cool too. Just an idea.
One might want to say to Sony Ericsson that they should perhaps focus on building cooler device in the here and now, but you have to admit… it’s nice to see SE looking forward and not backward. You can’t get to where you want to go without a plan!
