So in case of riots or protests it would be way easier fir governments to shut down communications. 

Sorry, cynical mode off. 

 

That's actually an interesting technology and quite a logical step, following the "cloud" era. Keep a device with you as "light" as it can be and delegate the heavy processes to the network.

As I work in the mobility industry, thus really excited me.  So many people are scared their phones could burst into flames.  This technology could blow the lid off the cell phone production BUT, I could see battery producers fighting it

This might be the fight that sees battery tech firm actually coming up with a better solution then 'fast charging' = the fear of loosing business altogether!

The limitation of a base station less than 50ft away makes this sound more like a battry-free cordless landline than a mobile phone.

And the race has started.  Let's see who funds this technology first, Apple or Google?  Maybe the technology will advance far enough that batteries will go the way of the dinosaurs and the Edsel. Wouldn't it nice to never have to replace a car battery.  The flashlight in the car would always work. No need for the electric company.  OOPS!  I'm sure now it will never work, by hook or by crook. :rolleyes:
