Stanford Summit: What can't a phone do?

Paul Jacobs, CEO of Qualcomm, is describing the future of what the mobile phone will do. Based on what he's saying, I think there's nothing it can't do. It's not just a communication device. It's a social network device. It's music and entertainment (of course). It's a health care device. (Your doctor will be able to be in your social network and know when an emergency happens.) It's a real-time event notification device. (It will alert you of "ultra realtime" events - world events, emergencies, and blog posts by your favorite rock star.) The phone is both one-to-one and one-to-many experiences. The bottom line, from this conspicuously biased viewpoint, is that 3G is here and the phone is where it's at.
