While not revealing too many specifics, Mr. Nagel did mention that the fruits of the acquisition of BE, Inc. and its talented group of engineers will soon be seen, specifically in the area of multimedia. He said that new technologies capable of displaying photo realistic images on 4″-5″ VGA screens will also have a major impact on handhelds, likely in the next 6-8 months. And eventually we’ll see “mini-tablets” — instant-on devices that do a few things, do them extremely well, and are simple to operate. People are absolutely moving away from complexity, according to Mr. Nagel.
