one thing for sure is that the market has its own life and moves
on regardless of what we like or not: as everyone can see,
Sha-Mail is a run away success, but the Pashapa isn't.
"everything cordless" may be a good idea for octopus, not human
beings. how will you hold a camera head smaller than a peanut,
a transflective color LCD, processor & memory card, a controller,
and power (sent in radio as to contactless smart cards?) ...
many things other than the lens-CCD we already or will have on
a mobile (don't tell me you don't need a color LCD because it
adds no value to the phone's prime function - talking) not only
a mobile is easier to hold than a PDA (handheld?) but also it's
a share of resource to make the integrated device smaller and
USB can feed power to the connected devices but most cordless
design will have to include a battery. you'll have to remember
to charge all of them on an array of adapters, some every week,
some every other days, ... enjoy.
USB 2.0 with mini-B port should be on every peripheral device:
DVD/CD, camera, keyboard, and game controller. please remember
besides FDMA, TDMA, and CDMA, there's always a simple solution
to provide best capacity: WDMA - wire divided multiple access.
if you don't like the cords, a simple spring roller to retrieve
into the device may help.
I agree with Benjamin on many things, like a phone is a phone
and doesn't need the camera function. it doesn't. a camera
needs to have network function, maybe via WLAN ... or PHS.
but for a small camera with MP3 and can comfortably be held
in hand, why not we also use it to talk?

MoU was 482 (8 hrs) in the second quarter, while I think it's
200 some in Japan. why does AWE need mMode?
after all, we return to and live with markets, not daydreams.
