PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I don't think I've ever seen this before, but please correct me if I'm wrong. Samsung anf Google were supposed to unveil the Samsung Nexus Prime with Android Ice Cream Sandwich next week, but in a surprise announcement, the companies said that the press event is cancelled - out of respect for Steve Jobs. In the meantime, leaked specifications reveal that the Nexus Prime could be a real doozy.

Define what you call AI in this post. I can think of two definitions right now. One has an official status among the field, but is very broad (computer program with an ability to learn), and every phone with an annoying T9 feature qualifies. The other is Hollywood's view of things, which you may argue best fits the average guy's expectations : to look, behave, etc... like a human being. I believe current phones, and computers as a whole, remain stupidly far from this : can iOS 5 understand metaphors and sarcasm now ? Write music ? Do poetry ? Drive a car ? Code its next release ? Or even, to pick something which some modern computers can actually do, win a TV game without an internet connection ?
