Om Malik writes a piece about the future of mobile phone, discussing whether mobile phones could think and adapt. Looks like his dream on this “has started to take shape” now since Nokia has started this with a little app called Nokia Situations.
Nokia Beta Labs describes:
We have created an experimental application called Nokia Situations which you can use to define how you want your phone to behave in different situations, like “In a meeting”, “Sleeping”, or “Playing with the kids”. With the application running in the background, your device automatically senses the situation you are in (e.g. based on time, day, location, available networks) and adapts to it according to your preferences.
Download the app, try it out and tell me what you think.
