If you are in business, you need to make sure that you get yourself a smartphone. It’s time to move in to the 21st century. Smartphones already have an increasing market share and chances are they will be up at 80-90% market penetration in the next 2-3 years. All of the major mobile phone manufacturers are releasing smartphones regularly. If you want to compare mobile phone deals the most popular handsets are the Apple iPhone 4, Blackberry Torch 9800, Nokia N8, HTC handsets and the Samsung Omnia 7. vivo
A smartphone is more than just calls and text messages. Here is what your smartphone actually is.
Your all in one communications device- I can think of a variety of ways that people can contact me. It’s no longer just talking and letters. I have calls, text messages, email, Facebook, Instant Messenger and Twitter. I can access all of these contact points on my smartphone which has many benefits because I can get back to people quickly instead of having to worry about checking multiple devices to make sure that I do not miss a message from somebody.
An entertainment device- My smart phone is also an entertainment device. On my smart phone I have podcasts, I have music, I have eBooks, I have videos and I have video games. Obviously, when I am at home I won’t use my phone for entertainment but sometimes, when I am out on the road, I want to let my hair down. Also, I may want to play games or listen to music when I am at the gym. This means that I do not have to carry more than one device with me whilst I am out and about. Memory is increasing on phones so there is no reason to carry more than one device.
A business efficiency tool- My smartphone increases business efficiency. There was a recent study done by Blackberry that showed carrying a smartphone increased efficiency and saved users on average about an hour a day. This is because they can do things like respond to emails whilst on the road. Personally, I also constantly jot down ideas in my phone. Occasionally I even write full articles on my smartphone whilst at the gym to be published online.
When you are doing your next mobile phone comparison, you need to get a smartphone. You need a device that does more than just calls and SMS messages. Your smartphone is your all in one device- communication, entertainment and increased business efficiency.
