Most people don’t realize how fast mobile phone technology is advancing these days, it seems to be increasing exponentially. As we study all the new apps and features along with all the new devices, we see that there is no way to stop these advances. The question is; are you in or out Will you accept these new technologies and applications or will you fear them? Are you sure you trust these innovations? What about privacy, hacking, and the future?
To quickly illustrate how fast things move in the smartphone space, let me give you a few examples. These are up to date, like this week; personal technology items in the smart mobile phone industry. The first article I came across on Boston.com, an article titled: “Look at this: Deposit Money Taking a Picture”, by Andrew Vanacore – AP Business Writer / Feb 23, 2010. In the article, the writer says:
“In the near future, you may not even have to visit a bank or ATM to deposit a check. You’ll just take a couple of photos with your cell phone. Apps to do that are now available for the Apple iPhone and other devices from USAA, a company that provides insurance and banking services primarily for military veterans. “
He goes on to explain in this article on personal smartphone technology that banks such as Chase, B of A and Citibank seem to agree with this technology, the article’s author suggests, and will introduce this technology in 2010. The concept is called “capturing remote repository “, and where it seems to be great technology and a user-friendly concept, we must also remember the target mobile users have become from hackers, especially as we learn of the release of secret codes used to encrypt such devices.
Scary stuff, for those who use such apps, but in fact, it would surely facilitate wireline electronic deposits, right? Of course, if cell phone banking bothers you, maybe we should suggest that you shop windows in real time through your cell phone. It no longer makes sense for you to drop shopping, just go through the window, even if the store is closed and you press buy, and it is yours, and it will be sent to your house. Shopping online while window shopping.
A recent New York Times article explains it all. The title of the article; “Mobile Phones Let Shoppers Point, Click, and Buy” By Stephanie Rosenbloom – Posted: Feb 26, 2010. Author explains how shoppers can use their mobile phone to order from a retail store window and buy online simply by pointing to the article. in the window; wow, that’s great.
Wow, what a concept, all of this through the technology of your smartphone. And this is something that will definitely be a hit with cell phone buyers and users. Okay, what about Skype smartphone calls? Yes, that is also available now; On TopNews Online from India and article titled; “Samsung Embeds Skype” which was sent by Jimmy Peterson on Saturday, 02/27/2010 – 12:25 PM explains it all. The article investigated the impressive growth of Skype usage features on various smartphone devices, as if it could become the international standard for all mobile phones in the future. Panasonic and LG are already offering this, and it is a huge hit in the EU and Asian markets.
As soon as one company introduces a new feature, all the others seem to follow it. Just because Apple or Google have a new app doesn’t mean the industry won’t make it a standard feature on all smartphones like digital cameras, video clips, etc. Sure, technologies or applications may work slightly differently due to patents, software, device hardware, but basically every company will offer every application eventually.
The competitive nature of the industry is heating up as hundreds of millions of Chinese, Indians, Southeast Asia, Africans and South Americans are getting their first mobile devices, face it, it’s a world with mobile cables. In fact, in a recent article in the online version of MB Manila Publishing Company; “Report: Global Phone Sales Grow 8% in Fourth Quarter”, by Melvin G. Calimag on February 27, 2010 at 2:19 pm explained how smartphone sales are reaching record highs in 2009 to almost 25% and could double in 2010.
