This paper provides an overview of the role of colors in the evolution of mobile phones from basic industrial design to the recent convergence of using them as color imaging and multimedia device from the user experience perspective. The use of mobile phones as image capture device is a natural synergy with voice and visual communication. While the user experience of using these phones as image preview/review device is adequate for the purpose, their value for quality image consumption (e.g., watching movies or high quality pictures) is limited until virtual display (or similar immersive technology) for mobile devices becomes commercially practical. Mobile user interface is highly constrained by the form factor of the device and the usage environment. The inherent human perceptual limitation and ecological constraints of pose a limit to the growth of using mobile devices for quality entertainment or photo album collection and perusal.
