They are also turning into storage devices in their own right. But the mobile phone industry is in danger of confusing people in its quest to pack everything into handsets, thinks Scott Jenson, a leading mobile industry design consultant."</i><br /><br />This fellow thinks things are GETTING too complicated?? I think they arrived at and passed "complicated" a while ago. I would guess most of us here don't mind complicated too much (I would think some here thrive on it). I'm sure we could agree that things are not arranged to well on most of our phones. Just looking at a few items on my NON Smartphone we have under settings: Tools, Personalize, In-Call Setup and Initial Setup just to name a few of them. Under each of those are a dozen more options. I love it when people who contribute to the mess then say we have gone too far. So what do you think?
