You’ll Hold the Whole World in Your Hand

By deans ~ September 10th, 2010. Filed under: Observations, Random Thoughts.

This post in the NY Times Bits Blog has the money quote from Pete Hutton, VP of Technology and Systems at ARM:

…expect to see smartphones in 2012 that have about the same performance as a current business laptop.  The fastest phones at that time will have four 2.5-gigahertz processor cores and be able to handle things as complex as running virtualization software.

This is exactly why we started BluMtnWerx, and why I’ve thrown myself back into mobile apps.  Clearly, much of what we currently think of as computing is moving to the very edge of the network, to the device formerly known as a phone, in your hand.  This is exciting stuff!
