Smart Phones of Future ( A Small Presentation )



  • Well my friend made a small presentation for a competition in Europe for Smart phones of future. Overall his idea is good. This is just a simple presentation but his ideas are great. So the project is in Social evaluation phase and if you can view and like and give some feedback then it would be great.

    Here is the link for the presentation.

    And here is the presentation link where it is present for the link.

    SO IF YOU WANT TO SUPPORT THEN PLEASE LIKE THE VIDEO AND GIVE THE FEEDBACK HERE AS WELL.



  • @pakopro2

    May I ask question?

    What made you think that you will get intelligent critical evaluation from the crowd at pkpolitics?



  • @Sipahi Well It is posted in Science and Technology forum of Pkpolitics and i think many Foreign students of Pakistani origin do visit this website and then obviously they can give some feedback and more ideas as it is just an initial idea and in future it will be refined and Secondly this presentation was made by a Pakistani and the ideas are also discussed pertaining to the Future of Smartphones to the developing nations and I think it will help and in fact it could give the ground for more Ideas for Smartphones pertaining to our country and to the world in general......:)


    Also in my view Pakistanis should divert their attention to the real discussion which our country really want rather than indulging in petty fights of politics and i think this presentation will help....



  • Thanks for quick response.

    Best of luck to you and all those who are using their imagination and intelligence in positive efforts.



  • Smart phones ARE micro computers with phone capability not the other way around. Second, it does not make economical sense to make phones based on market segment, mass production leads to reduce manufacturing cost and specialized production leads to higher prices. Cameras, wifi and other bells and whistles are very cheap when they produce in quantity.

    End user are technology ignorant, they don’t need complicated dual bootable devices. To give you an example, computers are pretty much standard, you can choose processing power and memory but for end users they don’t make much difference as long as they run the programs they need successfully. Same laptop use by student is in use by business pros, only difference is available programs based on their needs.

    Computers evolve to current stage based on commercially available technology, not on segment base approach same is true for mobile/smart phones (prime example: Apple, tried this in past with Machantosh, which happen to be the best publishing computer but failed at mass level. Then they change the strategy and start producing computers for masses and become successful). In future, segmentation will go with applications not with the hardware as application segmentation is very cheap compare to hardware segmentation and one can run multiple applications on one device without any issue. For masses hardware is not the driving force, it’s the functionality available through programs is the driving force.



  • @Dusky Well dusky thanks for your input but unfortunately due to lack of time many aspects could not be discussed and that is why it is creating some problems. The actual Presentation is more than 15 minutes long but were condensed to 3 minutes to upload for Tommorowtalks webiste. It is a well researched Presentation and i will answer some of the questions.

    1. The first Idea about this presentation have been already taken by Chinese company until recently and they are working on Market segmenation. One Chinese company will explore this idea and already one deal have been signed to provide Smart phones for Children and Smart Phones for Farmers will be unveiled in 6 months.

    Here is a Small Article for you

    http://technode.com/2012/04/25/low-end-smartphones-should-democratize-education-in-rural-china/

    SO the first idea of Specialized Smart Phones discussed here is already in the process and is beneficial. Because you know total Smart Phone Users of the world are less than 10 Percent of the total Population of the world. So it is like 90 Percent Untapped market and you can capture this market Segmentation.

    1. Secondly No Mobile Phone at present can work as the Micro Computer technically. But in future it is envisaged that it will work as a micro Computer. If you will peek into the slide of one example of Rasberry Pi have been given. Take a look at that example.

    http://www.raspberrypi.org/

    RASBERRY PI IS IN FACT A MICRO COMPUTER.

    The reason Smartphone cannot work as a Micro Computer is

    1. Symbian and 2) Android based operating systems. They are not compatible exactly with *86 processors or with AMD chips exactly.

    2. One idea is given in presentation that how Smart Phones can work in future as a smartphone. And that is by Virtualization and through System level enhancement.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtualization

    VIRTUALIZATION AND EMULATION can help in bridging this gap.


    Regarding your suggestion that end user is ignorant and yes they are and that is why the idea is TO BE TRANPARENT FOR THE USER. The user dont need to switch anything rather everything will be done in the background.


    Last but not least that Current Smartphone Prices are way over 600 Dollars and by Market Segmentation you can lower this price.


    ALSO THE SAME GROUP IS WORKING ON A SMARTPHONE WHICH WILL BE PRODUCED UNDER 100 DOLLARS FOR FUTURE FOR PAKISTAN AND INDIA LIKE 100 DOLLAR LAPTOP WE WILL HAVE 100 Dollar Smartphone AND WILL COMPETE APPLE AND SAMSUNG. SO WAIT AND SEE.........:)))))))))))))))))



  • I am leading couple of strategic initiatives for the local provincial ministry for food and agriculture, this include applications for farmers and ranchers. We did a comprehensive research on area, input we got is, they would rather have an application running on their existing smart phone vs. adding another toy under the belt.

    $600 for a smart phone? I am not sure what kinda devices you are talking about, here in Canada most top of the line smart phones with the career goes around $100. Secondly, I am pretty sure chines cheap mobile phone would not be much different then many other cheap chines devices:)



  • @Dusky Well i am talking about top of the line Galaxy, Lumia and Apple and they are all above 500 Dollar range. Secondly please dont underestimate China as brands from Apple to Dell are now made in China. I am afraid you are talking about some package in which we can get new smartphones for 100 dollars otherwise It is just like an Estimate of what our PTI fellows did made out of Laptops recently. The Apps are good for developed world but more than half of the population live in Developing nation and main aim is to explore that market where more than 80 percent population never saw any smartphone.

    Nokia, Sony, Erickson are now going for these solutions as they are vital.

    Also I know these apps very well. Apps are Commercial and in order to have homogenous system around one region these apps dont bode well as it is an extra burden for farmers to pay for apps.

    Well Just wait for 6 months and you will see some devices and I am hopeful critics will shut their mouth with Specialized Smartphones that will be in the market in coming Months.

    ALSO IN MY VIEW CHINESE PRODUCTS RANGE FROM THE BEST TO WORSE AND CHINESE GOODS DESTINED FOR EUROPE ARE TOP NOTCH.



  • Although I am very anti-Microsoft and Pro-Open Source, this is an excellent video showing future of phones, technology and communications in general ...

  • @Rasheed Well In Future Augmented reality will take the lead. In 2013 you will see Glasses of Augmented reality and Augmented reality along with Holography will be the future. The future of top of the line smartphone will be focused on

    1. Miniaturization

    2. Augmented reality or Virtual Reality

    3. Near field communications

    4. Artificial Intelligence

    GOOGLE have Unveiled GOOGLE GLASS coupled with Smartphone for the purpose of Augmented reality and you will see this in 12 months time.

  • All major brands have manufacturing facilities in China, but chines companies can not copy and market goods based on the proprietary technology. e.g. you find iPhone look like phones coming out of china which are powered by some open source OS. So yes, shell may look same, but nothing in common with original iPhone.

    Once you go with R&D and propriety product, price will go high. Cheaper price will buy you a sub par product. It's like, tata bring their one lack rupee car "Nano" to the auto show in north America, and the review they get were "it's an glorified golf cart". Means, yes it look like a car but it's not a real car. Same goes with "smart" phones coming out of China.



  • @Dusky Brother it seems your knowledge about Smartphones is poor now you are discussing for the sake of Argument like many Pakistanis do and do you know I have seen many Europeans never like to Discuss with Pakistanis anything as they do the same thing in meetings as they disregard the effort by their Pinching points and they think they are Kings by their Point scoring ability.

    Do you know that except for Apple majority of the Smartphone makes use OS and Free operating system. You know the World leader in Smartphones at preset is SAMSUNG and and at third place is HTC along with LG, MOTOROAL, SONY ERICSSON and all of these companies mostly use free and Open source operating systems majorly in their phones. I used the word "ANDROID " in this regard so that those people with little knowledge could have an overview.

    So there is not any Need of Proprietary OS when they have powerful OS which is free as well.

    Take a look at it that what ANDROID is which companies are using it.

    http://www.android.com/developers/

    http://www.android.com/

    http://www.android.com/about/

    http://www.android.com/devices/

    THE FUTURE LIES IN FREE AND OPEN SOURCE OPERATING SYSTEM AND I HAVE GIVEN THE EXAMPLE.

    Please do study Android and then argue as you said OS is proreitary but the world leaders are now using Open source software. So your argument here dont fit in as China dont need to ask for to use Proprietary Software.



  • You are so right, only you "know it all".

    You are so right, open source is the way to go and any thing which is proprietary is bound to sink like linux and open office... now don't tell me you are writing a reply on a proprietary windows based PC and run MS Office to make the presentation, or may be a cracked version of MS windows and office .... DO YOU?

    Arguing for the sake of argument? Oh, so you were looking for a pat at the back for the presentation you posted... no criticism even if the idea seems tested and wasted??

    YOU SHOULD HAVE SPELLED THAT OUT, I MIGHT HAVE SAID BRAVO!!:)



  • @pakopro2,

    The advancements in software is moving at hundreds of times slower than hardware. Other than sugar coated interface, nothing has changed in the core OS in my view from many decades.

    I have also not seen any innovative Artificial Intelligence implementation in software and I don't believe there will be anything in short term future.

    Agree with rest of the points about future features in mobile.



  • you can think this smart too

    Mobile Phone guns easily available in Peshawar



  • @Dusky Well i will not reply again. Also this is not my presentation but my friend's presentation. Also I am more accomplished than most of the Pakistanis and I can give technical answers not the answers for the Sake of an Argument or out of personal agenda.

    ALSO GO AND STUDY LINUX SYSTEMS AND THEN COMPARE THEM WITH WINDOWS. Your technical queries will be welcomed but here you were wrong and as usual you did not accept that you are wrong and ANDROID is FREE OS.

    @rasheed Well no this is not the case. Because you know there are more than 500,000 Apps available in the market right now and Software development is actually limited by the Hardware designs at many instances. Also Core OS dont need to be changed as overtime there are not much changes in Architecture of Hardware for smartphones. The best thing is that now EMULATORS are available that could do the trick. OS development needs a lot of time and effort and a huge team work is a must for it so obviously it will be a slow process.

    If you are interested then please take some time to study Android Operating system. It will open another world for you in smartphones and Pakistan really need developers in this field.
