The term smartphone wasn’t known until 1997, when Ericsson introduced the term describing the concept according to Wikipedia.
Mobile phones (prior to this smartphone era) themselves had transformed the way we communicated with one another already. Writing letters, having home phones with long wires all around our houses began to become a thing of past quickly.
But smartphones completely revolutionized our lives in every aspect of human interaction. Today, the primary mode of communication is now the handheld smartphone (not just any mobile phone). It is the way we live or day-to-day lives. In fact, it has become almost very inconvenient to do without them.
From text messaging to booking appointments, to shopping, to purchasing airline tickets, to manage social media, to blog, to record a special moment of your life conveniently, to send a video message, to talk to somebody halfway across the globe for free on video and on and on and on. The list is so long and it only indicates how ingrained smart phones have become in our lives.
This is an absolutely amazing phenomena and it only indicates how much progress we have made in terms of technology and how easy our lives have become with smartphones!
Statistics indicate that the number of smartphones around the world has grown to about 4 and this number is only expected to grow to match the number of literate people on the planet. Isn’t that just amazing to even think?
