No, the world isn’t quite populated with flying cars and android assistants just yet, but we do have automatic vacuum cleaners and wireless power transfers. In North America, when it comes to cell phones, we’re still trying to figure out how to use stone tools, whereas in places like Korea and Japan, they’ve got plenty of advanced goodies to enjoy, like mobile TV, mobile banking, and cell phones that pack 8 megapixel cameras.

I came across these couple of videos from NTT DoCoMo, a well-known mobile operator in Japan (equivalent to Telus Mobility or T-Mobile, I guess), depicting what they envision as the future of cell phones. More specifically, they’re taking us on a short trip to 2010… the same year that the Winter Olympics make their way into Vancouver and Whistler.
