You nailed it Darren. Aren't these the same folks that complain about not being accepted as "real" members of the corporate board? It's no wonder with cockamamie predictions like this. I can see the possibility of phones going away, but not anytime soon...say in 20 years or so. (Hopefully this isn't another evil BYOD plot to trick employees to bearing another cost burden. The company ditches desk phones and employees *cough* have the privilege *cough* using their own cell phone.)
The ability to perform *real* work on mobile devices is always going to be limited unless some totally new way of interfacing with them is developed. Even in Star Trek Kirk just did simple things like signing reports and duty rosters on mobile devices. When serious work had to be done they moved to a console. Duh.
