Sony Replacing Handset Wiring with a Single Copper Cable

Something innovative or at least interesting always comes out of Sony's R&D team. This little invention could change the appearance of Sony and Sony Ericsson products some time soon. Sony just announced the development of a "single wire interface technology" that replaces the 20+ cables currently found inside mobile devices that connect the phone's moving pieces together.

These signal, video and audio cables hidden in the hinge or rotating parts will be replaced with one single wire capable of transmitting data at 940Mbps. Sony says that this will provide greater reliability and flexibility in their products, but we disagree. While typically if one of the cables were to break in your device, you'd just get a new one, so it might not be a big deal if this new cable breaks as well. However, one cable designed to do 20+ things leads to more potential for it to fail. What do you guys think?
