|Are You Smart Enough For A Smart Phone?
|By: Titus Hoskins
|Get ready, the smart phone might just be the
next "Must Have" tech device. Don't laugh, this may
be more true than many of us realize or would like to
believe. Why? Mainly because the smart phone fulfills
our ever increasing need for a mobile device that gives
us all the features of a laptop/internet/phone in one
small package. We want it all and we want it small.
Go figure! For regardless of the size of our brain cells,
we all need a small communication device that keeps
us constantly connected no matter where we are. Connected
to friends, family or business via a phone and the Internet.
Totally connected to our lives and our sense of "self".
So will you pass the smart test when it comes to smart
phones? Or are you still scratching your head, wondering
why you would need another techno gizmo cluttering up
your life? If you're still wondering, here are seven
reasons or factors why it would be smart for you to
consider getting a smart phone.
|1. PDA and Cell Phone Combo
A smart phone is really a combination of a cell phone
and a pda. You get the best of both worlds: a cell phone
and the functions of a pda in one simple small device.
Smart phones can come in different designs: candy-bar,
clamshell, slider and flipper. A smart phone offers
many pda-like features but keep in mind it is still
more like a mobile phone than a dedicated PDA, which
offers larger screens and more applications. A PDA is
more like a small computer or laptop than a cell phone.
As technology becomes faster and smaller one can expect
smart phones to become more like a dedicated PDA, offering
more applications and more functions of a conventional
handheld in a smaller package.
2. Mobile Convenience
Perhaps the greatest advantage of having a smart phone
is the mobility it gives you. You can stay in constant
contact with all your friends, family or your work.
For mobile professionals it can be a very convenient
and practical way to stay in contact with your work.
3. Laptop Mini-Me
The smart phone and especially the Pda phone can be
a simple laptop that you can take anywhere. This device
can take the place of a small laptop keeping you connected
via phone and the Internet to all the information you
need. Extremely useful for students and in-the-field
professionals such as real-estate agents, builders,
architects... Although they are slightly different creatures,
the line between a Pda Phone and a Smart Phone is blurring
real fast. Smart phones are usually smaller and offer
less features than a Pda phone which is more related
to a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) or a Handheld
4. Entertain Me
Increasingly, these smart and pda phones come equipped
with countless games, MP3, camera, video... all to entertain
you. Important on those long plane or car trips with
unexpected stop-overs. Also great to keep any complaining
off-spring totally enthralled and completely oblivious
to their surroundings for hours at a time. Save big
on your headache meds by getting a smart phone for little
junior or little miss!
5. The Lost Factor
Just admit it, we have all been lost at some time in
our lives. Now you don't have to be; many of these smart
pda phones come with a GPS system to keep you in touch
with your location at all times. Become totally grounded
with a smart phone!
6. The Cool Factor
There has to be something said about style - these smart
phones are sleek and stylist. Fashion should not be
a reason to buy a smart phone but sadly it will be a
major factor for many who do buy one.
7. The iPhone Factor
You can expect the "Cool" factor to leap-jump when the
iPhone hits the market. The iPhone may do for smart
phones what the iPod did for MP3 players. Hey, there
is nothing cooler than an Apple anything! Besides the
cool factor, the iPhone will probably revolutionize
how we perceive and look at smart phones. It will elevate
the smart phone to unheard of heights and place it center
stage in our lives. Most of us will be smart enough
to quickly grab one of these techno marvels. How about
you? Will you be smart enough to get a smart phone or
will you take the opposite route? While you're making
up your mind, just remember you don't have to be an
Einstein to appreciate the smart phone. Nor does being
a prime candidate for the next Jackass video necessarily
rule you out - everyone can benefit from having a smart
