So here’s an idea that struck us today. Let’s combine two theories: first, one day all our entertainment media will be virtual and we’ll pull this from "the air" to any device wherever we are. Second, the smaller the device the harder it is to enjoy your entertanment media because of small screens, few songs, over-heating, battery life.

So imagine the future phone as a conduit for your entertainment media, not the final place where you will enjoy your media. Your phone is a device that you lets you play (and record) your media from larger devices. Simply connect your phone with entertainment hardware wirelessly or using ports.

Imagine: Your phone calls down your photo collection and you play the screenshow through your laptop, your phone calls down your dance music collection but you play through the stereo at the party while your parents are away, and your phone calls down your video collection for your mini-TV when you’re sent to your room when the French Polishers didn’t get round in time to fix the scrathes on the furniture made by one of the big fellas you didn’t invite anyway.
