Smaller and smaller is going to be the norm. Heck, how long will it be until your cell phone is powerful enough to be your primary computing device for applications like what a carpc is doing? A year or two until it can drive a full size monitor/touchscreen?

^ just not really fully-implemented because the corporations see no reason to go after such a small market share..
Pretty much what soundman98 said. I should have clarified: a year or two until I see the technology really reaching widespread use (outside of current generation tablets). Some of the new phones coming out are impressive, but again, the market needs to grow/mature to really see the full exploitation of the tech. (I will admit I am 'only' using a Galaxy 1 device, so not as powerful as the newest dual core beasts coming to market, but not impressed enough to call the phone more than a nifty feature rich toy. It won't replace any of my primary computing devices for anything but the most basic tasks)
i really don't see the mobile device catching on to any serious degree with what this forum does. i think they are getting close, but the interfaces are still a very long way off from being anywhere near what we use, or what the oem's offer for indash infotainment.
after all, this is a techie forum, so it is more difficult to make us happy, and i believe that techies are a minority in the overall population..
usually you need some small-soldering skills.
