Will mobile phones lose fame over a more high-tech gadget just like tablets toppling desktops? The mobile industry continuous to soar high in the market because of the numerous purposes it serves including the fact that it is very easy to use. Mobile phones have totally evolved paving the way to the creation of the smartest smart phones imaginable.
Place of employment
Company employees have added power to their phones since they have become an indispensable means of communication. Think of it as a virtual assistant that keeps track of your appointments and can store a massive amount of data. No need to hire a personal assistant which can cut down your expenses. Phones are no longer built for calls or SMS but for the role of a personal assistant.
David Ginsberg, the vice president for market research at Intel, considers a mobile phone the new virtual personal assistant. The form factor no longer matters. It is basically about the computing power of a device that makes it appealing to consumers.
Social media platforms have turned into bridges connecting friends, family, relatives, acquaintances or perhaps even lovers. Mobile devices makes it easy for us to socialize that there is no doubt that everyone will continue to click their phones just to socialize. As soon as mobile devices kicked in, businesses start to boost social media fan base through mobile apps to engage with people.
More and more apps
Everything is just possible when it comes to mobile phones that a locked phone can easily be unlocked which means an iPhone user can freely download any application they wish or switch from a different carrier. The Unlocking Bill was passed by the US House of Representatives giving consumers more freedom.
New technology of charging phones
Scientists in Massachusetts Institute of Technology recently discovered a new way of charging devices just by getting electric current out of water droplets. These water droplets are said to have enough power to charge a mobile phone. Water is condensed and processed in a super-hydrophobic surface called the Lotus effect.
Phones continue to evolve in form and function but nobody underestimates its power to influence our everyday lives. Perhaps one day it will be possible to touch or sniff our friends and family using phones.
Not so long ago, electronic gadgets are prohibited from schools since they may interrupt classes. But now, phones are seen in-between and during classes. They are used as research equipment or as notebooks. The cameras of phones can be used to document anything. They’ve turned into teaching aids and perhaps one day they can replace projectors or even teachers.
Imagine the unimaginable
Have you imagined what the future phones will be and how functional they can become? Nokia Researches gives us a peek of their Morph phone that will eventually use radio frequencies, speed and motion detectors and silicon microphones. The super powerful gadget can turn into a thermometer just like those used in airports.
