Device Convergence…or Not

Stuart Mudie writes about his experience:

I’m a big believer in mobile convergence. I don’t want to carry two or three different devices around with me when I can have a “phone” that does everything I want it to, if not quite as well as a specialist device, then at least well enough for my needs. The cameraphone on my Nokia 6630 has already replaced my digital camera, for instance, as the photos it takes are more than good enough for professional printing. And my PDA, the Handspring Visor, was retired from active service a long time ago.

Until a couple of weeks ago, I would have said without hesitation to anyone who asked that convergence was definitely the way to go.

So what changed? Well, I was given a 1GB iPod Shuffle for Christmas.
