Really, Mobile Devices will Take Over the World?

My blog has been quiet for quite a while. My inspiration comes from crunching/exchanging information which I should do more often.

Gartner analysis tells us that by 2013 mobile phones will overtake PC’s as the most common Web access device worldwide. A few years back I would have said non sense, but apparently most Web users are comfortable with less processing power. Just take a look at the increasing business in Netbooks.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a mobile phone which can connect wirelessly to my home TV, monitor, car display, mouse, keyboard, etc? And to have the processing power of the current Netbook generation?

Where can I buy it?

Why are we making our PC devices (for instance the slate) smaller while we can make our mobile device’s functionality bigger?

What about the single responsibility principle? Does it apply to physical devices as well as good object-oriented software?
