Smartphones

A smartphone or smart phone is a mobile phone with an advanced mobile operating system that combines features of a personal computer operating system with other features useful for mobile or handheld use. They typically combine the features of a cell phone with those of other popular mobile devices, such as personal digital assistant (PDA), media player and GPS navigation unit. Most smartphones can access the Internet, have a touchscreen user interface, can run third-party apps, music players and are camera phones. Most Smartphones produced from 2012 onwards also have high-speed mobile broadband 4G LTE internet, motion sensors, and mobile payment mechanisms.

desktop apps on a mobile device and not the other way around

Aren't we heading into the realm of apps not being so device centric? ie. Adobe Creative Cloud, Google Apps, Office 365, etc

That is one direction. Personally I want offline access to non-webapps developed with a desktop UI in mind. I dream of having a VM webserver running in my pocket which I can cast to any screen and input devices I want. It would be nice if that were also my phone so I wouldn't have to carry multiple devices. Right now I still need at least two devices for that. I am getting a new GPD Pocket netbook I can carry around with me but I will have to use my phone for calls and internet access. If I could get a 6" phone that does (allthethings) then I wouldn't need two devices. I briefly debated getting the Gemini PDA but that is a bit smaller than I want and is coming from an unknown company with no track record.
