    I'll tell you what will be really popular - Federation-issue communicators that transmit your coordinates to someone with a transporter who can then lock onto you and beam you up!

    Basically, like all fashion articles, phones are going back to PDAs and cellphones separately. There's just too many OSes for the industry vision to be coherent, much like the pre-DOS days of computing.

    @serrano, yeah and a minature warp drive that you can plug into your car, travel to any part of the world in a fraction of a second.

    A holosuite for next Christmas would be nice. Just think of all the trouble you'd be in for staying in your 'room' all day. :P

    I'm moving to a lower end Android phone, cause I no longer care about all the apps. I rock a Win 8 Enterprise tablet, so it does the work of a laptop and tablet (dual-core i5 proc). For most of the stuff I do, it ends up being on par with my quad-core i7 laptop.

    Phone as my digital hub...pfff. You can cram as much resolution into the phone's screen as you want. It's still going to be a crappy tiny screen that you'll have a hard time trying to press buttons.

    If you do want apps, there's always Bluestacks! Not a perfect solution, but more than enough for all but the most difficult apps.
