Today's smartphones are much more than phones -- they are powerful, networked multimedia computers, and over the next 10 years they'll get far more advanced. As a result, mobility is transforming many day-to-day processes -- including how we sell, communicate, collaborate, train, and educate.
Here are six key technological developments that will revolutionize the smartphone over the next decade....

Here's something for you then, Usher owns/ed (according to a news source) this phone. But still...

my phone has a little flap at the back where you shovel coal into it to make it work, but as I lose/break 3-4 phones a year, buying an expensive one would be pointless.

Thank you for the link.  It is a 2/3G network we are at 4G right now.  I love my smartphone I have a Samsung.  I havevplayed with the z10, and not too excited about it.  Out of all the cell phones sold around the world, 1 in 4 are Samsung smartphones.

My advice is to shop aroundcand see what kind of warranty plans different stores provide.  Where I work, if you pay for the coverage, you break your phone, you get a new one.  You fry it in water, you get a new one.  We cover for three years.  We are a Canadian store, but, surely someone offers a coverage like this where you live?

You don't have to explain the market. 9/10 "iphone" customers would leave with an galaxy :)

The link was just a interesting ridculous phone that was released nothing special. It's also a few years old. Quite basic so no I'd personally wouldn't aim to own it :S

I'll be interested when Nokia release the flexible phones. Instead of pinching the screen you flex it in and out for the function.
A company over here was also started using "Liquapel" (spray silicon from what I understand) which "weatherproofs" the phone.

As for tablet's Galaxy Note 10.1 absolutely great tab for a business/professional.

But I'm happy with my quadcore processer haha. Smooth as a bell on the S3, even stopped using launchers because I was just that impressed with the functions and customisation on it's base software. I can't wait to see the S4 or what's next for Samsung. Then again there is a lot! of tech coming out soon that will change a fair bit of the normal household. It'll be a whole different place by at least 2015 at a minimum.

thanks for the advice, but I only really use my phone for its MP3 player. I always buy sony's as they have the best sound, and always small ones (xperia), as, because of the nature of my job, a large screen phone would be smashed to bits in days instead of weeks!
rather than pay a premium for insurance, I find it easier (and cheaper!) just to buy a new 2nd hand phone every time I break one.
I know it's not exactly a great system, but it works for me and my badly organised, slapdash way of life.....

The Galaxy S4 is supposed to have an octo-core processor.  I have to wait a year to upgrade, so I will be getting an S4 or whatever is the newest at that point.
