The future of mobile technology
Today while at work, I had this revealation of sorts. I thought to myself “Why can’t you go from one mobile platform to another, without having to open up another program or app?”
Now what I mean is this: You can pause a television program in one room of your house and resume it in another. Same with netflix. Now why can’t this same philosophy be carried over into the PC and mobile device community? I understand that this may not be entirely possible at this point. With the current and the near future state of the smartphone tablet world, I don’t see this as an entirely out of the realm possibility.
RIM will soon have QNX within the tablet and smartphone markets sometime next year. iOS is already running the same OS on the different platforms. With android things become slightly more fragmented with so many different versions being operated at the same time. One way to solve this is to skip the carriers completely for their updates. OTA updates could solve part of the problem for sure for both RIM and Google.
Wouldn’t it be nice to go from say your smartphone of choice, to the tablet of the same OS and be able to continue with what you were doing without there being that lag for everything to load? Well I have to get back to work here in a few minutes. Do you think that this is completely out there, or do you agree? Inquiring minds would like to know. Feel free to comment and let me know. 🙂
