Being mobile: putting work in your pocket

For the hardware buffs out there, this morning's panel on "New Devices for Mobile Workers" at the Web 2.0 Conference was all about the tools out there to get work done while outside of the office. Laptops and PCs are far from disappearing from the work landscape, but with mobile development for iPhone we're starting to see that people like accessing work and play while away from their home base.

Topics covered:

Technology: Microvision's svelte new projected displays, which are slated for 2009, could change the mobile office game. Imagine having a combination device that turns any surface into a display, with one of those neat projected keyboards too.

Of course they're working with Apple, but looking ahead to 2011 when the 4th generation iPhone will become the EyePhone (EyeWear, plus AR applications)! If you can now buy a song from iTunes sitting in Starbucks, why not pay for your coffee with your iPhone too? Once GPS is included, the pieces will start to come together. Eyewear will be the last big piece.
