Most people don’t realize how fast cell phone technology is moving nowadays, it seems to be increasing exponentially. As we explore all the new apps and features along with all the new devices, we see that this progress cannot be stopped. The question is; are you in or out? Will you accept these new technologies and applications or are you afraid of them. Are you sure you believe in this innovation? What about privacy, hacking, what about the future?
To quickly illustrate how quickly things move in the smartphone space, let me give you a few examples. This is the latest, as in this week; personal technology articles in the smartphone industry. The first article I found on Boston.com, an article entitled: “Check this out: Deposit money by taking a photo,” By Andrew Vanacore – AP Business Writer / February 23, 2010. In the article the author states:
“In the near future, you may not even need to visit a bank or ATM to deposit a check. You can simply take a few photos with your phone. Apps to do just that are already available for Apple’s iPhone and other gadgets from USAA, a company that provides insurance and banking especially for military veterans.”
He explains in this section on personal smartphone technology that banks like Chase, B of A, and Citibank appear to be a good fit for this technology, the article’s authors suggest, and they will introduce the technology in 2010. The concept is called “remote deposit capture.” “, and since this appears to be a great technology and a user-friendly concept, we should also keep in mind the target that hackers target from mobile users, especially when we learn about the release of secret codes used for such encryption. device.
A scary thing for those who use such an application, but of course, it will definitely make it easier to deposit electronic cables right? Of course, if phone banking is bothering you, maybe we should suggest window shopping in real time via your phone? There’s no point in shopping tell you drop again, just walk by the window, even if the store closes and hit buy, and it’s yours, and will be delivered to your door. Online shopping while window shopping.
A recent article in the New York Times explains it all. Article title; “Handphones Let Shoppers Point, Click and Purchase” By Stephanie Rosenbloom – Published: February 26, 2010. The author describes how shoppers can use their mobile phones to order from a retail store window, and purchase online by simply pointing an item at the window; Wow, that’s cool now.
Wow, what an amazing concept, all this through your smartphone technology. And this is something that is sure to be a hit with both phone buyers and users. OK, so what about Skype smartphone calls? Yes, it’s also available now; In India’s online TopNews and article entitled; “Samsung embeds Skype” delivered by Jimmy Peterson on Saturday, 27/02/2010 – 12:25 pm explains it all. The article examines the impressive growth of Skype’s usage features on various smartphone devices, as if it could become the international standard for all mobile phones in the future. Panasonic and LG already offer this, and it’s a huge hit in the EU and Asian markets.
As quickly as one company introduces a new feature, all others seem to follow suit. Just because Apple or Google has a new app, doesn’t mean the industry won’t make it a standard feature on all smartphones, such as digital cameras, video clips, etc. Sure the technology or app may work a little differently due to patents, software, hardware devices, but basically all companies will eventually offer all the apps.
The competitive nature of the industry heated up when 100s of millions of Chinese, Indians, Southeast Asians, Africans and South Americans got their hands on their first mobile devices, let’s face it, this is the world of mobile wired. In fact, in a recent article in the online version of MB Manila Publishing Company; “Report: Global phone sales grew 8% in Q4,” By Melvin G. Calimag on February 27, 2010, 2:19 pm explains how smartphone sales hit a record in 2009 up nearly 25% and could double in 2010.
