Sorry if this is totally boring to you but the point is that I wrote the future of cell phones in July of 2007.
I saw the iPad 10 years ago as well.
So what do I see now? I see something that will blow your mind - literally. When I talk to people about this they shrug me off the same way that they did when I talked about the internet tablet that we would all enjoy having in our kitchens and the same way that people did when I wrote out the above spec sheet.
Do you want to be the next Google or Apple? I can tell you what's coming and if you have the money you can be the one who does it.
