The Open Cellphone

The Open Cellphone: "The personal computer for the rest of the world isn't going to be the personal computer. It's going to be the cellphone...Communication is more important than computation on the human hierarchy of need."

But before that can happen, the cellphone is going to have to change. Specifically, cellphone companies have to surrender their control over the phone's features and capabilities. If phones had standard ports -- such as USB connections -- innovators could develop their own applications without having to wait for the cellular provider to offer them.
