Smartphones Chris Chiozza

Throughout history smartphones have been a monumental product of society. In the 21st century we have many types of smartphones ranging from Blackberries, iPhones and Androids. The purpose of these phones is to make life on the go more accessible no matter where you are. The application of this technology will benefit society, because it will allow us to have less things to carry such as the improvement of cameras in smartphones.

In 1994, the IBM Simon changed the world of mobile communication by becoming the first cell phone to offer software applications/ apps by using a stylus and a touch screen. The original cost of the phone was $899.

In an article written by CNN, it talks about how smartphones make the society superhuman. In 2011, about 6 billion people were mobile phone subscribers. The article went over how smartphones over the years allow more computing power in the palm of our hands.

Smartphones are beneficial in the sense that they allow everyday items in the palm of your hand. For example, the use of alarm clocks, reminders and mobile paying is all done through smartphones in an effort to decrease the amount of stuff a person carries.

As years went on Google and Apple began their rivalry on the most efficient way to serve the world through smartphone devices

In conclusion, smartphones are beneficial, because they allow people to have many of the things they have on their computers in the palm of their hands. The issues that arise with this technology is how privacy is controlled from the amount of information people add on their phone.
