Are smartphones becoming too technical and confusing?
The mobile world advances at a rate of knots, mobile phones are becoming more like mobile computers than a normal portable phone. With the arrival of the Apple iPhone came a new dimension in mobile communications.
Since the first iPhone we have seen numerous advanced smartphones hit the mobile market, the BlackBerry smartphones, the Google Android T-Mobile G1, the Nokia’s the LG’s the Samsung’s and the HTC’s, to list them all would take forever, and not forgetting the soon arrival of the Palm Pre and the iPhone 3.0.
With the smartphone comes the relevant App Stores and the abundance of mobile applications by the thousands. But we should consider are these smartphone becoming too advanced and are people becoming confused by their technology?
I remember when a mobile phone was just a mobile phone; they were easy to use and did what was required. But these days the mobile phone has evolved beyond a phone and has become more of an integral piece of daily lives, one wonders what would happen if all the mobile phones in the world were to suddenly stop.
Basically I look on a mobile phone as a means of communication, as long as I can talk to someone or send them a text then that’s fine. But what do our readers think?
The question is a simple one… are smartphones becoming too technical and confusing? Feel free to drop me a comment below.
