Food for thought.
We thought that tablets will replace PCs but that didn’t really happen. And, in my view, that’s mainly because (1) the cost of tablets were not low enough for it to be stationary and (2) the size is not small enough for it to be portable.
Looking at the product life cycle of many technological products, and for technology to evolve (and mature), it usually takes 4-6 versions of the same idea to develop (trialed and tested) before it gains traction in the commercial sector. Hence, early adopters are the ones who usually bare the higher cost on the risk involved.
Either way, the main question remains:
Will Foldable Phones be the one?
I don’t know the answer but I’m excited to find out.
Anyway, here’s an interesting short video from Bloomberg on the evolution of smart phones.
