Thoughts on future of mobile os and handset design

Slowly but surely, by adapting most features present in Android, iPhone is turning into a polished version of Android that probably Google planned but never implemented.

In few iterations of releases, there will be a point when both os will become increasingly similar wrt appearance, apps, Ecosystem etc. The market will saturate and consumers overwhelmed by the experience will once again switch to a simple phone that does what it is supposed to do – make and receive phone calls. In coming 5 years, the market for no nonsense feature phones will rise again. #prediction

Either make a dedicated camera, or laptop running IOS, Android, leave humble phone alone…personally i would prefer a flip phone or qwerty keyboard handset.
