Just have a look at the speed with which new, unbelievable powerful mobile phones are arriving.
1. Chinese company OnePlus is hosting a launch event on October 29 in India (and other countries) where it will - in all probability- take the wraps off its new affordable Mini device, touted as the OnePlus X. The OnePlus X is expected to be a Mini variant of the OnePlus 2, and will therefore carry a lower price tag in comparison. There have been numerous rumours around this aspect of the OnePlus X.
2. Microsoft is all set to launch its recently announced Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL Windows 10 smartphones in India in the month of November. The company is planning to bring the Lumia 950 smartphone to India at a price of Rs 38,000, while the Lumia 950 XL will be carrying a price tag of Rs 43,000, approximately.
3. Nintendo announced the first smartphone - game, developed in partnership with mobile service company DeNA , will be an app called Miitomo, which will allow users to create Mii characters and exchange facts about themselves with other players. Of course, it requires advanced mobile phones and fast processing units.
Well, if they continue like this, very soon our 2 years old mobile phones will become... waste! And I am sure that this will be the case, as the speed of the third industrial revolution is getting higher and the pace of change in certain industrial sectors, IT and mobile phones are certainly two of them, will get faster and faster.
This is why I insist that we have to be ready for a more radical transformation: the term waste, very soon, will be completely redefined as a result of the third industrial revolution - this video at the beginning of the post, from a recent key-note I delivered in Buenos Aires, explains why.
