While it may seem that phones are all the same, there have been a huge number of advances in the mobile technology, just over the last few years. The ways that people interact, that companies to business, and that families stay connected have all changed over the last few years. The most amazing thing about this process is that very few people have actually realized how many changes have been happening.
Looking back less than 10 years, shopping on the phone was a painful process that was limited to just a few stores. Most people wouldn’t even trust their credit card information through their phone. Now online shopping is easy with the phone, and you can even load your credit card details onto your phone, tapping to pay instead of carrying a card with you.
Applications that communication with other people solely through photos are now the norm, while a few years ago, taking too many photos was the easiest way to fill up a phone and make it nearly useless. There are even applications for the phone that do the same work as computer based graphics editing systems did only 5 years ago.
Marketers are now able to completely run all of their tools off of their phone, launching campaigns within seconds. Mobile messaging systems allow them to stay in contact with clients and people int heir network at all times. The world seems so much smaller when just a few keystrokes can reach a development team in the Ukraine and a design team in India.
Mobile technology is developing at breakneck speed, with everyone from the phones themselves to the applications taking new leaps and bounds. In the next few years, mobile phones are going to become even more important, making the world even more connected.
