"There is no point in drawing a distinction between the future of technology and the future of mobile. They are the same. In other words, (mobile) technology is now outgrowing the tech industry."

Mobile (smart) phone has become a real new "personal computer".
A funny thing is that main feature of such device is the screen, not the phone.
It is really a "communicator" device and smart assistant.
But "phone" part was critical for adoption, since it is a familiar metaphor,
and it enabled easy financing: purchasing $700 phone is easy $100 down payment,
and purchasing $700 PC (or laptop) is usually "real" purchase.
Could screen (and large battery) decouple from this personal communicator device?
Even more, could "personal" data and apps become a container that can swap shell device?
