Anssi Vanjoki of Nokia at Web 2.0 Expo

Anssi Vanjoki gave an outstanding keynote talk at Web 2.0 Expo discussing Nokia's vision for the future of mobile computing. First, context and location will dominate future innovations for a while. The integration of GPS, high-performance computing, a lot of memory and crowd-sourced information will change the way we use the mobile phone. In fact, it won't be a mobile phone any more, it will be a mobile computer surrounded by an ever-present Internet.

Second, Nokia is doing some amazing things with display technology that you'll have to see in the video. A description in prose won't suffice. If the technical and business part of this video isn't interesting, fast forward to about 10:00 and watch the promotional video Nokia put together.
