Do we REALLY need a phone?

I want to comment on the modularity thing.

PCMCIA is not even an option. If you look at the trend,
you will notice that more and more comes in SoC
(System on Chip). This is complete systems with
internal bus, etc. This is micro system technology.
I know that we will see more of those and they will
be standard items you can buy.

(SDIO cards has the normal SD-card size, mini SDIO has the same size
as a mini SD card)

I guess that in a few years you can buy all of
these (some are already for sale):
- WiFi mini SDIO module
- Bluetooth mini SDIO module
- GiFi mini SDIO module
- UMTS SDIO module
- GSM SDIO module
- SDIO TV tuner
- SDIO DAB receiver

So a device with 4 SDIO slots could be the future.

Please don't send me Word or PowerPoint attachments. See
