Get ready, the smart phone might just be the next
“Must Have” tech device. Don’t laugh, this may be more
true than many of us realize or would like to believe.
Mainly because the smart phone fulfills our ever increasing
need for a mobile device that gives us all the features of
a laptop/internet/phone in one small package. We want it all
and we want it small. Go figure!
For regardless of the size of our brain cells, we all need a
small communication device that keeps us constantly connected no
matter where we are. Connected to friends, family or business
via a phone and the Internet. Totally connected to our lives
and our sense of “self”.
So will you pass the smart test when it comes to smart phones?
Or are you still scratching your head, wondering why you would
need another techno gizmo cluttering up your life?
If you’re still wondering, here are seven reasons or factors why it
would be smart for you to consider getting a smart phone.
1. PDA and Cell Phone Combo
A smart phone is really a combination of a cell phone and
a pda. You get the best of both worlds: a cell phone and
the functions of a pda in one simple small device. Smart
phones can come in different designs: candy-bar, clamshell,
slider and flipper.
A smart phone offers many pda-like features but keep in
mind it is still more like a mobile phone than a dedicated
PDA, which offers larger screens and more applications.
A PDA is more like a small computer or laptop than a cell
As technology becomes faster and smaller one can expect
smart phones to become more like a dedicated PDA, offering
more applications and more functions of a conventional
handheld in a smaller package.
2. Mobile Convenience
Perhaps the greatest advantage of having a smart phone
is the mobility it gives you. You can stay in constant
contact with all your friends, family or work.
For mobile professionals it can be a very convenient and
practical way to stay in contact with your work.
3. Laptop Mini-Me
The smart phone and especially the Pda phone can be
a simple laptop that you can take anywhere. This device
can take the place of a small laptop keeping you connected
via phone and the Internet to all the information you need.
Extremely useful for students and in-the-field professionals
such as real-estate agents, builders, architects…
lenovo m10 Although they are slightly different creatures, the line
between a Pda Phone and a Smart Phone is blurring real fast.
Smart phones are usually smaller and offer less features
than a Pda phone which is more related to a PDA (Personal
Digital Assistant) or a Handheld PC.
4. Entertain Me
Increasingly, these smart and pda phones come equipped
with countless games, MP3, camera, video… all to
entertain you. Important on those long plane or car
trips with unexpected stop-overs. Also great to keep
any complaining off-spring totally enthralled and
completely oblivious to their surroundings for hours
at a time. Save big on your headache meds by getting
a smart phone for little junior or little miss!
5. The Lost Factor
Just admit it, we have all been lost at some time in our
lives. Now you don’t have to be; many of these smart
pda phones come with a GPS system to keep you in touch
with your location at all times. Become totally
grounded with a smart phone!
6. The Cool Factor
There has to be something said about style; these
smart phones are sleek and stylist. Fashion should
not be a reason to buy a smart phone but sadly it
will be a major factor for many who do buy one.
7. The iPhone Factor
You can expect the “Cool” factor to leap-jump when
the iPhone hits the market. The iPhone may do for
smart phones what the iPod did for MP3 players.
Hey, there is nothing cooler than an Apple anything!
Besides the cool factor, the iPhone will probably
revolutionize how we perceive and look at smart phones.
It will elevate the smart phone to unheard of heights
and place it center stage in our lives.
