Remember how some people claimed that porn was a large contributor to the advancement of Web technology? Well, this article in Wired discusses a Yankee Group study released Monday that predicts a $1 billion global market for mobile porn by 2008.

Apple’s new photo iPod — which one Slashdot wag dubs the iPorn — maxes out at 25,000 pictures or 15,000 songs. It’s a triple-X theater in your pocket, even if it’s only for slide shows. But you know video is next, along with image capture. The iPod already has a microphone attachment that enables you to record audio. (I use it to record the bad country songs I compose in my spare time.)
Cell phones, PDAs, browsers, e-mail clients, cameras and video recorders converged into single handheld devices years ago (did I mention I want a Treo?); the Apple brand will just make it cooler to have one. I imagine the iStudio or iLife is not that far off. Or maybe they’ll call it the miniMac.
