    Lots of speculation, however lets look at the parameters that are hard to
    change or that users won't want to:-

    Size

    Well a phone might be integrated into your glasses or even sit inside your
    ear, but assuming it is an accessory that you carry about then like a
    wristwatch its size is restrained by ergonomics (e.g. a wrist-watch is small
    enough to fit on your wrist, so smaller for ladies, but large enough to be
    read). So it will be big enough to fit between your mouth and your ear,
    have a display large enough to read, thick enough not to snap or bend in use
    and fit in your pocket when you are not using it - so 12cmx6cmx1cm. Might
    be in more than one part.

    Weight

    Could be a bit lighter, but difficult to see how the energy budget needed
    for a transceiver can be carried in anything less dense than a lithium
    battery without fire / explosion risk - maybe fuel cells. So 100g - 150g.

    Display

    Limited by the size (see above), but the resolution and luminous efficiency
    could improve, but no point going beyond retinal ability. Possibility of
    projection onto a wall or directly into the eye (but would you trust this?).
    so HD max. Ability to drive full size display or associated low power
    colour display (like a Kindle) via RF.

    Input

    Touch screen already good. Maybe virtual keyboard interpreted by cameras.
    Dynamic voice recognition.

    Connectivity

    Fully synthetic transceiver up to 5GHz. Possibly low bandwidth satellite,
    for when you really are out of coverage.

    Computing power

    Likely to be moved into the net, as with current "thin client" PC's. E.g.
    voice recognition.

    Memory

    Oodles; 48Gb already possible with ease, expect 1Tb in your phone - if you
    really need it.

    Camera

    Already pretty much topped out on this with 42Mp. Perhaps compound eye type
    devices to keep the size down.

    Integration

    More functions integrated onto the phone - credit cards, purse, travel
    tickets, car / house keys etc.

    Security

    Likely to be finger print / voice / visual recognition activated - i.e it
    will only work for its real owner.

    Back up

    Auto back up to network - if you loose it just pick up another one and
    reload.
