It is becoming very clear that most people in the future will interface with their phone more than any other device. Phones have become the personal computer. Can design keep up? As technology evolves, we as designers must be prepared to evolve. Does the design work in a 640x480 (again!)? Can it zoom and still be clear? Is messaging the same as for a print piece?
Yes the Cell phone has grown up, in fact I agree with the PC Mag.com writer John C. Dvorak's article "The Perfect Mobile Phone Is (Nearly) Here." Here he states that our mobile phone will be our personal computer. Something that we carry with us and "dock" when needed. Makes sense. So as designers we need to fully embrace and begin our new transition into designing for this platform.
The best is yet to come.
