Just like Columbus discovered in America the "New World" where everyone dreamt to begin living a better life, so will Nokia soon introduce to the worldwide wireless users the "new world" of a unit-free personal computer experience. With its latest mobile phones becoming more and more a new type of "multimedia computers," Nokia has been taking the world of telephony a step beyond what others have or want to imagine. In particular, Nokia has been envisioning and working towards the idea of creating a mobile phone that is both a gadget and a tool where every form of communication, information and entertainment coexist.
Perhaps you think that this is actually what everyone else has been doing, but Nokia thinks and most importantly acts, otherwise. Simply put, what Nokia executives see for the future of mobile telephony, is a world of ideas and capabilities currently handled by a personal computer stationed physically somewhere. Thinking outside the box, the Nokia manufacturers have envisioned a world where all of the current applications and functions one can perform using a PC are remotely executed through the use of a specially equipped mobile phone.
Everything, from simply browsing the Internet to find the next available tickets for a movie, to storing large files and writing documents, if Nokia has a say, will be possible over one small, light, and most importantly, mobile phone. Already having a screen and a keyboard, the future of mobile phones seems extremely promising as the only thing changing between the personal computer experience and that to the mobile phone is where the server is located. According to Nokia manufacturers, the world will soon experience how the remotely controlled files can be stored, shared and manipulated over a device so small that fits one's palm.
Interacting with home television units and local radio stations, or adjusting the temperature of a room and preparing coffee in the morning, are examples of a reality that has already been knocking the doors of the privileged developed countries' citizens. But in a matter of few years, features currently only offered by a desktop or laptop computer will be at consumers' fingertips when they ride the bus or walk down the road. Instead of having to wait to be physically present in front of their computer screens, the mobile phone users of the near future will be able to finish their work projects, store the files and send them to clients for approval, using only their cell phone; preferably a Nokia one.
High-tech fans and people of all ages will embrace the freedom associated with such a pioneering experience; especially as remote access is already possible. Although critics support that issues will arise slowing down the speed with which Nokia will market this transition for mobile telephony users, Nokia will probably manage to surprise many, as technology advances greatly before our own eyes.
