Don’t get me wrong, I live by my cell phone and definitely do more email than talking. I actually do almost as much texting as talking. But the small keyboard and onscreen touch keyboards combined with intuitive word completion (where the phone guesses at your words) is creating a bad communication experience.
As example – this is a recent email received (not a text message, but email) that was typed on a mobile phone:
“Is there something I’m supposed to so or the presenter?”
Translation (after a phone call to figure out the original message) = “Got your email and just want to confirm there is nothing I need to do at this time while we wait for the presenter to review the presentation proof.”
