Perhaps market penetration is reaching a saturation point, however tech wise I think there is plenty of exciting things to come. Google glasses, watches and other wearable technology. Flexible displays, unlimited fast internet everywhere and who knows what some 15 year old pimple faced kid is dreaming of...
