Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality has admittedly been a player on the scene for quite a while now, but it has never really kicked off in the way that tech nerds decreed that it would. Well, in the near future, it may finally start to boom. For anyone who doesnt know, augmented reality is a view of the real-world environment augmented by computer generated sensory input. What this basically means is that you can point your smart phone camera at something in the real world and it will be overlayed with digital information or an animation. There are already a wide range of apps that make use of augmented reality technology. Apps such as the Augmented Car Finder help you to remember where you parked, and the London Tube application aids you when navigating to the nearest underground station. Youll instantly be able to access in depth knowledge of every building, tree, road, gadget, tool or snack product you come across, alongside a wealth of stories and reviews . Youll know the value of all your neighbours cars at the push of a button. There will be virtual adverts for local restaurants floating along the streets. Your mates latest tweet will float in a speech bubble above his head.

Waterproof Phones
This is definitely one of the less futuristic prospects on the list. I say that because the technology is already creating waves (that was honestly unintentional) in the mobile world. Liquipel is the name of the product, and its basically a nano-coating that makes electronics waterproof. If you Google it, youll find videos of people merrily pouring water all over their iPhones as if theyve just discovered an app that makes it swim. Although nothing has been announced, it is rumoured that both the Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5 will be sold with a Liquipel coating. It should be noted that Liquipel is designed to protect against water and not other liquids, and that the manufacturers intend it to be protection against worst case scenarios (rather than an excuse to let your mobile join in at bath time).

Mobile to become a remote control for your life

Visionaries always jump to this when they talk about the future of the smartphone. When they say a remote control for your life, they basically mean that phones will gradually take over many tasks that we have to do manually at the moment. Perhaps there will be no more alarm setting because your phone will calculate when to wake you up for work based on live traffic information. Itll already have instructed the boiler to warm the house half an hour ago, so you wont have to leave the warm duvet for a colder climate. Youll stroll downstairs and enjoy some shredded wheat that it ordered from your local supermarket when you told it you wanted to eat more healthily.

Serious Smartphone Viruses

Many of the advancements mentioned so far could generate excitement if they ever come to fruition, but heres one that wont go down so well with consumers. Its possible that there will be an increase of serious mobile viruses at some point in the future. Mobile viruses have, of course, been around for a long time. Even before smartphones and WiFi and 3G, viruses were spreading throughout the mobile world via bluetooth. These were usually relatively harmless, but as the technology progresses, so do the viruses. If we all end up using our phones as bank cards (see item 4), its scary to think what a virus could gain access to. Thankfully, there are plenty of free antivirus apps for both Android and the iPhone, and

We have saved the best for last. Smartphone manufacturers have unveiled a feature that allows you to speak to people anywhere in the world. Simply by dialling in a personal number that each phone user has assigned to them, you can hear and respond to anyone you wish (provided that they also possess a mobile). This process is named calling, because the mobile device of the recipient calls out by playing a tune or a tone, thereby indicating that someone desires to speak with them. I was surprised to learn that calling was once considered the primary purpose of phones, and apparently most mobile devices on the market already have this function inbuilt. Ill definitely get round to giving it a go once Ive finished playing with all these apps and accessories.
