The iPhone X is the Beginning of the End for Phones!https://www.kwameaaopoku.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/iphone-x-launch-delay-1024x608.jpg 1024 608 Kwame A. A Opoku Kwame A. A Opoku https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/6e0615375e93d5bfee488e9f2df621b2?s=96&d=mm&r=g
Another year, another phone announcement. On September 12 Apple unveiled its tenth-anniversary iPhone fittingly named the ‘iPhone X’ and showed off what it calls the “future of phones” featuring a fancy edge-to-edge screen and futuristic augmented reality cameras.
But while I was watching the event, all I could think about was that this phone might be the last smartphone to matter at all. That it marks the beginning of the end of phones as we know it, and we’re at the precipice of them just becoming tools.
What triggered this response wasn’t so much that the iPhone X was amazing — it’s that Apple figured out how to put cellular into a Watch.
Smartphones, as a category, are racing to the bottom. Each other year a trend sets the stage for what phone makers will try to cram in to help market yet another phone in various different ways.

Interesting read; the facts presented are plausible… though I think that there are quite a few innovations left with what can become flagship phones for these notable manufacturers. To follow your argument…if indeed phones face out we likely would go back to fall heavily on laptops and desktops….as has been the trend….old innovations manages to weezil back from obsolescence to usefulness.
