The Convergence of Technology

Ken Wirt, palmOne, Inc.

Wirt talks about how the convergence of technology is an interesting trend that has led to an influx of multi-functioning devices. Convergence devices save space, add convenience, and can sometimes enhance the functionality of the combined product. The Palm Treo is a great example of a convergence device and functions as a phone, handheld organizer, wireless email, text messaging, web browsing and even a digital camera.
