In this talk, future prospect of user devices in consumer electronics space and associated technological challenges, especially in low power aspects, will be discussed. Brief overview of current state of low power technology employed by many portable devices and wireless data collection systems will be followed by the suggestion of future research areas for low power user devices in the areas of portable power sources, components, software architecture, and SOC (System-On-Chips) technology. Finally, Samsung's R&D strategy in low power technology will be discussed.
