Our today’s mobile life from 2006

The market is boiling with new tablets, phones, apps and concepts from MWC.

So it’s a good time to look over the shoulder and remember what futurologists and technology companies were forecasting.

I find this video from 2006 really lovely and refreshing. It is at the same time old fashioned and visionary.

  • Old fashionned as the devices (UMPC) are bulky and ugly
  • Visionnary in the way people interact with apps and each other

They just missed the Social Network thing and focused on the ‘every person is a (dumb) consumer’ concept. Enjoy:

By the way, a 2006 UMPC would be called today … a smartphone, wouldn’t it?
