Re: available
I was very impressed by the Samsung smart home and Bixby. They have now a little wardrobe that cleans and irons your clothes, all controlled by Bixby. I loved it.

Joe: I don't see phones returning to smaller any time soon. Today was MWC19 Barcelona last day. Smartphone manufacturers are offereing smartphones in two or three sizes. Flexible and foldable smartphones are already a reality now. I saw three of them. They are pretty much the size of a phablet that can folded into something about the size of an iPhone Plus. You get more functionalit and you will be able to control absolutely everything from your handheld device. There is no way these things will get back to anything smaller.

@Susan: It's cyclical. Phones will return to smaller and more downmarket in time.

Reminds me of the ridiculously large cell phones rich people had in the '80s.

@Commisio: Tell me about it. I could get a used car for that much. (Maybe not a very nice one, but still.)

Why spend so much money on a device that other people want to use to get in touch with you?

Thank you for this Commisio. I didn’t know about this smart watch. This is something that needs attention, indeed.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other – or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers – simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
