The Future of Mobile Devices: 5G, Foldable, AR, and more

On today’s podcast:

Mobile technology is finally advancing out of the standard form we’ve become used to. The Samsung Galaxy Fold is one example of further innovation and possibly a redesign of how we communicate and interact with our devices. Will 5G, Augmented Reality, or even a slap-bracelet phone be on the horizon soon? Today we’ll take a look at where we’re at now and examine where we think mobile tehnology could end up in the near and distant future.

Today’s podcast cast includes: Adrien Warnerl, Drew Prindle, Caleb Denison, and Greg Nibler.
