The Expanding World of Mobile
It's hard to
imagine life without mobile phones. It was a decade ago when the
rotary dial, fixed to the kitchen wall, was the traditional and
typical form of telecommunication. Long-range conversation was
imprisoned in a physical cord. It was the technological older
brother of two cans connected by a string.
Now mobile technology is advancing at an almost unimaginable rate.
What began with huge plastic mobiles in a decade past have emerged
now as super-fast mini computers. You are able to check your email,
visit websites, order products to be shipped directly to your home,
handle your bills, send video and picture text messages, and a vast
array of other important functions. You can use your mobile phone
nearly anywhere in the world. The new "3g" technology has allowed
for fast data transfer.
The options in mobile phones have about as much variety as any
consumer choice. You can get a cheap mobile for simple text
messaging and phone calls. You can get a "Personal Digital
Assistant," or P.D.A., which is essentially a mobile palmtop
computer. This would allow you to surf the web and make calls.
Mobiles that are enabled for 3g often allow you to stream video from
websites like Youtube.com. Apple's iPhone and the Sidekick LX 3G
from T-Mobile are examples of these types of phones. In a sense, the
3g mobiles are a slippery slope to the obsolescence of the laptop.
Most of the web functions that the average consumer uses their
personal computer for are available on a 3g mobile now.
This has changed the world. The fast flow of information has
affected how media outlets get information. Users "twitter" updates
about their life directly from their mobiles in real time. Camera
and video phones allow average people to capture breaking news as it
Whether you want to join the fast paced world of 3g, or if you are
just satisfied with a simple mobile with basic text messaging, there
are options out there that will meet your needs. With expanding
technology comes great consumer choice and lower prices. It is a
truly mobile world, now, and to keep pace with commerce and current
events, a great mobile phone is a must.
