Gaming, on-line gaming, seamless voice, push-to-talk, VoIP, video sharing and streaming, entertainment, access to work, email, music, IM, payments, SMS, mobile web, etc, etc, etc. The All-in-One handset.
While handset convergence is the way of the future, I still feel that power-users, such as power-gamers, or power-music-listeners, and so on will rely on specialized handsets for such. Functionality convergence I see it to be more about “casual usage convenience”, meaning that successful converged handsets is about being “good enough” on many aspects, but not terribly good on a given one, well, except for voice, and data. The other factor is that not everyone (if you are reading this blog, you probably are the “exception”) cares about a heavily converged device; this of course varies with the region/country. That said, it would be awesome to have an All-in-One handset; I want one…
