What’s BREWing at Toshiba?

Qualcomm’s standard, but Toshiba’s phone. According to MIT Technology Review:

TOKYO (AP) — Toshiba Corp. has developed new software that allows mobile phones to work all the functions of Windows-running personal computers from afar, including editing documents, rebooting and sending e-mail.

The Japanese electronics maker said Tuesday that the Brew software and data compression technology it has developed can make mobile phones a handy device to access computer files and do office work wherever you may be — commuter trains or bus stops.

When do we get to run computational steering apps from the American gates at O’Hare, while buying something from the soda machine using our phone/PDA?
