Hello, I’m a PC. I’m a Handheld. Author: Eric Everson, Founder MyMobiSafe.com

I have said it before and I am sure I’ll say it again, mobile devices are simply replacing computers. Having said that with a certain degree of conviction, I can’t help but recall that ever present quote that is credited to Bill Gates, “When you want to do your homework, fill out your tax return, or see all the choices for a trip you want to take, you need a full-size screen.”

As a mere grad student of software engineering, who am I to question the “Pope of Software” himself… yet here I stand. Perhaps it is that I am actually seeing people begin to adopt the Vuzix headgear or perhaps it is because I know that once the Internet is on every cell phone the computer industry as we know it today will be facing significant hurdles. Perhaps now is a good time for the Dell’s of the world to start their R&D in the direction of handhelds. I can only speak for myself, but those Alienware phones (just Google Image it already) are hot.

So will the computer-based sister industry of wireless fade to wireless? I will be the last one to say that computers will be gone forever (after all we still use trains and they have been around in Europe since the 1770’s) but their role is destined to change. What we do on computers today is what we will all do from our mobile in the future. Today’s computer standards will give way to what we currently call “super computers” (another definition that will continue to evolve).

How does this change take place? What is the catalyst for this leap? Perhaps I am biased but arguably I defend that this migration takes place in security. After all, was it not the honorable Bill Gates that also said, “Security is, I would say, our top priority because for all the exciting things you will be able to do with computers - organizing your lives, staying in touch with people, being creative - if we don't solve these security problems, then people will hold back.” When people throughout the world are as comfortable using their cell phone for banking as they are their debit cards, by then my friend I will have already answered “the How” and “the What” for you.

Mobile banking is not a fad; it is the way most of our banking will be conducted in the future. For as many tweens you see carrying a cell phone today, I see another mobile banker tomorrow.
