Mobile phones will undergo a dramatic transformation over the next few years, incorporating more powerful processors and more storage, as well as new technologies. By 2010 or so, handsets will use flexible or holographic displays and could have processors that run at clock speeds up to 5GHz. In addition, they may pack up to 10GB of flash memory or hard disks that can hold 20GB of data or more. Future handsets will also include more advanced cameras, capable of capturing 3-D and holographic images, and rely on fuel cells or solar panels for power. Future handsets will switch seamlessly from one network to another, moving between cellular networks, mobile WiMax and other networks.
