- Mobile banking by photographing checks
- Check out a bike with a companion app and a QR code
- Video conferencing using the built in camera and microphones

Sounds like a petty bourgeoisie pleasures, ie nothing really important for life
and as for combining things in one device, I agree, it happened, but all this works worse than dedicated devices. If you really need gps for real stuff you would better use professional device, if you need camera not just for fun, you would prefer to use normal camera etc…
Having better ux than windows mobile doesn’t mean that it makes history. It is just a bit better version of a cell phone. The main goal of this device was to ease content (mostly paid garbage or hidden ads) consumption.
If you exclude everything that is not needed to you specifically, you will find that there is just gps + maps, cell-phone, mp3 player and camera. And all of these features working worse than the same via dedicated devices.
Is it a revolution we deserve to combine good features and make them work worse?
Just tell me why lemmy.ml should necessarily be ideologically diverse? To be in permanent chaos and useless fights? I think there is already plenty of such platforms…
Don’t hesitate to post such things on c/crypto 😉
