Future convergence: netbook and mobile

stuff_htc-g1

Convergence has become a bit of an old-fashioned term. But just because there’s barely a phone left without a camera on it doesn’t mean convergence has run its course. With smartphones more and more capable of performing the tasks we used to demand of our computers, and netbooks expected to dominate laptop sales again this year, the future of convergence looks bright. We’re expecting to see more laptops packing 3G connectivity and being sold – or even given away – on contract plans (just like mobiles). We’ve seen the Android operating system running on PCs, and how long can it be before Windows 7 is running on a smartphone? Convergence lives on. But, please, let’s find a nicer name for it.
