When I walk down the street, enter an elevator or go to a coffee shop, I’m always struck by how many people I see using their cell phone. And for the most part they aren’t making actual phone calls, but instead are texting, browsing the web, using facebook etc.
And this raises the question – are cell phones the new personal computer?
After all, people do so many things on their phone now that used to be only possible on an actual computer. They email, browse the web etc. Now it’s even possible to produce word documents or excel spreadsheets.
Fact is that smartphones are now becoming an essential part of so many people life.
Now although it’s undeniable that cell phones are becoming more and more advanced, at the same time we have to acknowledge that they do have limitations. Although their power will continue to increase, the size of them do present some problems.
After all, it’s a lot easier to do advanced work at an actual computer with a large monitor and full keyboard. Sure, there are addons such as keyboards that you can attach to a phone, but it’s not convenient carrying this around all the time. And the size of the screen will be the biggest factor why the cell phone won’t ever fully replace computers.
I am definitely excited to see how much further advances in mobile phones can take us. There’s no denying that the technology will continue to grow and it seems like just when you buy a new phone, within months there’s something that comes out with all sorts of new gadgets!
