    Re: NExt biggest thing to happen to cell phones...

    Voice commands (dialing a phone number and hanging up after the call is finished) and something similar to TeleNav on a cell phone. I am unable to hold a phone and drive at the same time so this would REALLY be a huge plus for me, and I can't seem to find a car kit to fit my van.


    LOL Forgot one thing. It has to be on T-Mobile. I'm not switching carriers to gain access to this.

    Well in Japan they have video phone calls, from cell to cell. Does that count?

    A: Streaming video to the device or device to device (As mentioned previously, is already avaliable in Japan. The US is WAY far behind cell phone technology than Japan and Europe).

    B: The ability to use a VOIP such as Vonage over a device (Again, already in progress).

    C: The ability to receive XM and/or Sirus radio directly on a device (Alreardy in progress).

    D: The ability to control electronic devices such as TV's, Stereos, etc (Palms can already do it, once it gets integrated into phones it will be cool).

    I guess since all these are already in the progress on one device or another, what more could someone ask for?

    Re: NExt biggest thing to happen to cell phones...

    Video conferenceing would be great but I think the next thing is going to be that you can plug the cell phone into a projecter or monitor maybe by bluetooth and use it like a home pc with cell phones/pdas getting more powerful it would be nice to have this. Nokia e61 does this with some projectors allready .

    Yeah, I know...You can also stream XM to a Q. And your home TV and TIVO if you have a slingbox set up at your house.

    Re: NExt biggest thing to happen to cell phones...

    I want to plug my BB into my car and have a H.U.D. on the windsheild.
    Then with voice activation I can "safely" drive and use the BB, chat, lookup directions, ect.

    Slingbox is a TV streaming device that lets you remotely view digital media from an Internet-enabled computer with a broadband Internet connection.
