Mobile phones have evolved over the years from a plain device that allowed voice communication to the present day smart phones that are capable of variety of tasks. Much touted smart phone lacks some of the rudimentary business as well as other functions that are available in a traditional laptop/desktop. This article proposes a new system called Next Generation Mobile Desktop (NGMD) that provides desktop equivalent functions on a functional mobile phone. Proposed NGMD leverage some of the emerging technologies to offer enhanced services to the user. This article discusses some of the existing as well as new mobile technologies and then proposes the architecture for the NGMD. This article also discusses some of the services offered by NGMD and provides illustrative examples of them. We believe NGMD capable phones would dominate the corporate market and free up the user from carrying multiple devices while on the road.
