Innovation needed in the interaction of users and technology Dusseldorf/Berlin, may 2009 – according to HTC Chief Peter Chou only by the computer manufacturer Apple succeeded to make the mobile phone to the Internet terminal. The reason is I, a deep misunderstanding of the phone manufacturers think. We engineers have focused too much on technical details or proverbial function list – but the mass of users has sheared the little. Apple has it first with a brand new, tried different devices and operating concept. And had success\”, says Chou in the interview with the Wirtschaftswoche. He sees the greatest need for innovation for the mobile phones of the future in the interaction between users and technology. A really intelligent voice control would be an approach. The Furutist understands that this is vital information.
But that requires huge computing power, and she needs a lot of power. The necessary batteries makes the equipment of large and heavy. That is a big challenge, not only for the cell phone producers, but the entire industry\”, said Chou over the Wirtschaftswoche. According to Bjorn Behrendt, Managing Director of Wissenscommunity 44044.com, there are two medium-term improvement to the ingenious design of the iPhone and the strict Softwaredesignvorgaben von Apple, characterised by the two buttons and the large touch screen with finger tip operation: speech recognition and commands about thoughts. \”Since many device manufacturers are still miles away from the usability of the iPhone is recommended for HTC: rather quickly copy than to die in glory\”, as Behrendt. Is clear in any case that the boom of the mobile Internet to keep is.
Trendsetters are Asians. So already 90 percent of South Koreans had a mobile 3 g access in the last year and 63 percent perform mobile payments. Four-fifths of the Japanese go mobile on the Web and makes only every tenth mobile\”, said Behrendt at his lecture on the value added Forum of Deutsche Telekom in Berlin new technique will often overestimated in the start-up phase.
