According to HP, the future of cell phones won’t be cellular.
The devices will do without 3G, 2G – any other kind of G, in fact – and they won’t be packing WiMax or wi-fi either.
Instead, HP predicts, the mobile will become just one of a number of gadgets in your personal area network that will get its connectivity via your watch, or a magic box in your pocket, probably using Ultrawideband (UWB) wireless technology.
HP’s idea is to take the radios that would have previously sat inside each device and house them instead in a ‘personal hub’, which the users will carry with them every day.
