Unfortunately I couldn’t get a good look at what game he was playing, but he was either actively writing an email while playing or using the mobile web to supplement the game in some way. You’ll notice the white iPod headphone that disappear into his jacket, bringing the grand total to three white devices being used simultaneously!

We wrote a rather lengthy piece on the future of mobile, digital creation for the Vodafone Receiver a couple of months back, with the train being the ideal future studio. For this guy, however, he brings his living room wherever he goes.
