Post iPhone Era in mobile : What's next

I started out in mobile in 2005. It was the time of flip phones :) WAP mobile internet sites.
The sex symbol of the industry was soon to be the Motorola Razr.

Then suddenly in 2007, Apple unleashed the iPhone and a new mobile era began. Now 4 years later, you can see that all smart phones are imitating apples iPhone. HTC, Samsung, Motorola, Apple, and others are all making all touch screen (no physical buttons), skinny brick phones.

With this weeks unfortunate events in Cupertino, it seems like a good time to reflect on what will be the next step in Mobile ? What is the next Era ?

To be honest i don't have a crystal ball, but i did discover a Samsung concept phone that sure looked like the future to me. Check out the Samsung Galaxy Skin concept phone mock ups below. Or click through to this article on Yanko Design that has even more mock ups ...

The concept seemed too far out to be real, but watching this video made me believe ...
