Do People Want Converged Devices?
from the no,-but-yes... dept
A new report has come out (and I swear we’ve seen similar ones in the past) claiming that people don’t want converged mobile phones and PDAs, as there are fears that converged devices do everything badly and/or that they start to include useless/pointless features. Of course, part of the problem is that the survey is asking people if they want “converged devices,” and not about what they’d do with a converged device. The thing is, if given the option of doing what a real converged device let people do, many people would go for that option. It’s not about the device, but the applications of that device.
