Mobile As The Entertainment Hub

El Reg has a pretty good piece on mobile phones and what will happen when (I suppose I should say “if”) they become the hub of the entertainment world, able to access everything, control everything and carry all your data. It’s pretty good, but it gets more interesting when it starts talking about the problems: If a mobile can access everything (via Bluetooth, cable, WAP etc) it has to be able to understand everything, and there’s a lot of different formats out there. Of course, “standards” is given as the answer to that problem, but standards can be very difficult to implement. Maybe if you get all your connections and media from one quadruple-player they can implement a standards/DRM solution across everything…
