Well the future we once dream about has arrived and this is the place where the latest and greatest advances in Smartphone technology go on show.

With all the power of a PC in your pocket, now Smartphones are getting even smarter!

At the Mobile World congress in Spain...this week big players revealed the latest inventions in mobile technology.

The hottest item, coming soon is LG's 3D phone according to Product Manager Shaun Musgrave.

"It's the world's first 3D Smartphone. More than just a 3D Smartphone. It's a very powerful Smartphone, powered by Texas Instrument OMAP 4 giving you dual core, dual memory, dual channel in order to render that 3D content on the handset," said Shaun.

Now games on the go aren't new, but Sony has taken it to a whole new level, squeezing its Playstation platform into a Smartphone.

Then there is Blackberry's latest offering a tablet to tackle the market leading Ipad called the "playbook" according to Jim Balsillie, Research in Motion Co-CEO.

"When you look at the Playbook, we're really lapping the field in terms of power of the engine and speed, and multiprocessing and multitasking and web fidelity.

So if you want to play a performance game, we can play that. If you want to play a segmented consumer services game we can play that so we feel very good about how we're doing and where it can go," said Jim.

But without fast network speeds for transferring data, smart phones and tablets can be a frustration, Kathryn McFarlane explains that's why Telstra's planning to roll out a slicker faster 4G broadband network technology which will eventually filter through to phones.

"There 25 million active mobile phones in Australia...more than one each and According to Telstra 70% of their new phone sales are Smartphones, it's a trend mirrored around the world," said Kathryn.

If video killed the radio star, then according to Tech Expert Duncan Riley, Smartphones and tablets look set to kill the desktop computer, more powerful and more mobile, all designed to allow you to run a business on the go.

"We're seeing a change to the point where your telephone, what's in your pocket is going to be more powerful then your desktop computer can do," said Duncan.
