I still remember the speech i heard from Ray Hammond the popular futurologist, when he mentioned that once upon a time they used to call the cars when they were first invented “The Horseless Carriage”, So its all about the horse that we use as a transportation method, there was no terminology such as “Car” at that time… In the future the same is gonna happen to the “mobile phone” according to Ray.
This has almost been confirmed in the latest report that Nielsen announced today. A phone call is becoming less popular, texting is becoming more wanted by everyone specially the teens. Can you believe it is primary reason people buy the cellphone is to send SMS’s?
I think it’s time now to start finding a new terminology for the device once called mobile phone.
