The world of telecommunications is being rapidly redefined by the Internet. Longer-term trends show that mobile, networked computers will form the basis of the future of personal communications. Not only is the telephone handset becoming mobile, by defauit, but the boundary between phone and computer is set to disappear.

In summary most phones are becoming mobile, phones are becoming computers and the underlying network is becoming a fast global TCP/IP network.
