Jeff Howe of Print Magazine sniffs out the possibility that there might be some design involved in all those cell phones out there. Yours truly gets off a few choice quotes.
“It’s an interesting time for mobile design,” says Matias Duarte, chief designer at Helio, a U.S. cellular carrier operated by South Korean phone giant SK Telecom. “The field is in transition from a technology to a design medium, much like the web was in the mid-’90s.”
Read the whole thing, “One Cellular Sensation.”
I’m only sorry I didn’t quite communicate just how radical I think the coming change in mobile design will be. The Web today is the result of a leap forward from it’s infancy just as great as the one from the Apple II to Mac OS X was. Yet that transition took place over ten years. I expect we’re soon going to be using UI that’s more Minority Report than OS X on our devices.
Hold on to your hat.
