forget about texting

20Feb03

siemens have announced their first smartphone based on nokia’s series 60 platform. instead of the standard 3 x 4 key layout, the sx1has 2 columns of 6 keys, one down either edge of the phone. add this to nokia’s new series 60, the 3650, on which the keys are layed out in a circle and you can guess this is the beginning of the end of texting. both of these phones are equipped with cameras, and i suspect (ok, i have it on good authority) that the manufacturers and the telcos would much prefer you send pictures instead of text, they get more money that way. i wonder if we’ll see a decline in sms over the next year or if these won’t really make a dent yet.
