The future

A mobile phone
At the beginning of 2005 a phone that turns speech into a text message was unveiled in South Korea.

4G (Fourth Generation) phones are already being planned which could eventually download full length films with really sharp pictures.

The phones could also download CDs in a few seconds. Watch out for them in about 2010!
