There are plenty of historic reasons to restrain one’s enthusiasm over so-called smartphones: they have been very expensive, and so, limited in appeal and sales; there are no standards to unify them in the developer community; and the industry has not even properly defined them.

While there is a lot going on in the computing world today, it may well be that nothing matters more than smartphones.
