Cellphones are getting 'smarter' and faster (3G) this year. Sonyericssons next range all feature 3G connectivity (K610i, M600, W950) in a much smaller format - more like their previous non 3G phones, rather than the 'clunky' first gen versions of last year! Nokia are featuring WLAN & cellphone integration, with auto switching of networks - very cool, and the Windows Mobile smartphones are packing on the features too (at a relatively high price still). Palm is still dragging the chain on integrating WiFi with their Treos though. There's plenty of educational potential in these emerging communication devices for the harnessing!
