The Advantages Of Smartphone Usages
For roughly 60 years, people watched television the same way. People would surround their giant living set, and they’d enjoy the most popular programs of the time. Then the internet arrived, disrupting innumerable businesses with its novel ways in which people could communicate and learn. Thanks to social media and the vast amount of resource databases available online, the entire nature of television viewing fundamentally changed. The days of an entire family watching the same show on the family TV are long gone.
The first mobile phone to incorporate PDA features was an IBM prototype developed and demonstrated that year at the COMDEX computer industry trade show. The prototype demonstrated PDA features as well as other visionary apps like maps, stocks and news incorporated with a cellular phone. A refined version of the product was marketed to consumers in 1994 by BellSouth under the name Simon Personal Communicator. The Simon was the first cellular device that can be properly referred to as a “smartphone”, although it was not called that in 1994. In addition to its ability to make and receive cellular phone calls, Simon was able to send and receive faxes and emails and included several other apps like address book, calendar, appointment scheduler, calculator, world time clock, and note pad through its touch screen display. Simon is the first smartphone to be incorporated with the features of a PDA.
