Cell Phone with a Spin

Spinning inside the Samsung SPH-V5400 cell phone is a 1.5GB hard drive, an industry first, according to the company. The cell phone can be used as an organizer, Korean-English dictionary, MP3 player, camcorder, and, well, a cell phone. Koreans will be able to purchase the device in mid-September.

By now you should know the exercise: follow the threads from similar products five years ago to today’s announced product, then look five years into the future. Go ahead; it’s your turn.
