In 2008, sales of cell phones across the world reached 1.28 billion (Solomon, 2011). As the cell phone industry grew, so did their features. Now, cell phones come equipped with GPS tracking, various types of applications (apps), e-mail programs, usage of the Internet with high speeds, and cameras. Different cultures have different wants and needs for what they desire in a phone.
Smartphones have grown to play a prominent our lives over the past 10 years, and they are now one of the most important aspects of our culture. Although the first "smartphone" was invented in 1992, they were not made commercially available in the United States until 2007, when Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced the iPhone. In doing so, he had unwittingly started the biggest technological explosion since the space race between Russia and the United States during the Cold War. Within a year of the release of the first iPhone, several companies began competing in this "smartphone race", and by 2016 there were more than 30 companies worldwide that produced these devices. They have become so popular that the terms "mobile phone" and "smartphone" are now one and the same; phones that do not have a touch screen and cannot surf the web are now all but extinct.

And I am explaining its business implications.
Over the last decade, electronic-based companies such as Samsung and Apple have collaborated with cellular-phone carriers, and have studied the average consumer to find endless ways to improve the cellular phone. As a result, the smart phone was born. With their ability to provide users with instant access to communication, entertainment, Internet access, calendar, news, social media, and much more, the smart phone revolutionized and shifted the path of modern technology. In 2006, Apple began this revolution with their release of the iPhone. Being the first proper smart phone, many other companies attempted to mimic the unbeatable features and technology that Apple had included with the iPhone.
Technology has, since the primitive years, always been used to invent tools in order to solve problems. This would, in turn, simplify and make man’s life easier. Through advancements in the field, man has become more efficient on both the macro- and microscopic level. Anything nowadays can be attained with either the flip of a switch or a click of a mouse. One particular technology that came about in this time was the smartphone. Since 2008, the smartphone, a device that combines a normal cell phone with a computer, typically offering Internet access, data storage, e-mail capability, etc. all in your hand was deemed as ground-breaking technology and created one of the largest and most competitive market in terms of
Mobile phones have become a staple of the modern era and can be witnessed in the hands of the young and the old alike. In first world countries, it is almost a need to obtain a mobile phone as they have become seemingly crucial in everyday life. Even in third world countries it is not a strange sight to see people with cellular phones. They fulfill a significant role in how we communicate, keep track of time, remember our schedule and, digest new information. Cell phones release a completely new spectrum of what people can do on a single, hand-held device. It has become effortless to obtain a cell phone but it can be challenging to notice what makes them different and understand how these differences influence the product. Apple and Android provide distinct benefits and drawbacks that can sway or deter a possible consumer. Apple relies on a more corporate approach that entails consistent performance and security. Android contrarily allows distribution in a multitude of third party developers which creates consumer flexibility and customization. These particular focuses allow Apple and Android to succeed in their own consumer specific, market objectives while also competing with one another in the mobile phone market.
In recent years smartphones have become increasingly popular with “roughly three-quarters of Americans (77%) now own a smartphone.”However, until a decade ago our modern-day smartphones came out, with the first being the iPhone. Due to its popularity, Google created the android system, released in the G1 smartphone a year later. Accordingly, with their advance technology, additional features, and affordability more consumers started buying Smartphones, resulting in full range audience, from children to elderly. Although other types of smartphones have been created, such as Blackberry’s and Window’s phones, none have been successful like the androids and iPhones. Even though androids and iPhones have obvious differences, they are more similar through their accessories, performances, and displays. (Smith, A)
The Smartphone market is emerging and growing. This is a well-known fact. However, this report primarily focuses upon what goes on behind the scenes in producing a Smartphone that is at par with the customers’ needs. The Smartphone market moved from producing sets with an alphanumeric keyboard to a qwerty keyboard, to a touch screen, to intelligent voice commands, to biometric securities, etc. Nevertheless, the diversity in needs of the consumer, increasing demand levels, the Smartphone industry hasn’t ceased to grow.
Bring-your-own-device, or BYOD, has increasingly become an accepted practice for corporate IT. With its purported productivity gains come with a whole new set of security concerns for IT departments and management. Principal among these is security, where much of the control that IT traditionally had is now in the hands in the users.
Mobile technology is an imperative industry today and, perhaps, the one experiencing the most rapid change. Every aspect of ordinary life in developed countries depends on cell phones: the freedom to change social plans on a whim, relying on GPS (Global Positioning System) to navigate people to unfamiliar destinations, and most of all raising productivity expectations to a staggering standard. Its invention came about to serve specific communication purposes; the initial pioneers in this field underestimated the massive impact, good and bad, mobile technology would have on society leading into the 21st century.
In the current corporate environment, mobile devices such as mobile phones and tables have a great impact on the business process of companies and how employees can perform and fulfil everyday tasks. Companies are adopting the BYOD (bring your own device) policy for management of these devices. To protect sensitive data, employees, and customer, companies must have a policy in place to enable an effective and secure use of these devices. Using mobile devices without having a clear policy and without defining the company’s valuable assets that need protection is bad business and opens up unnecessary risk.
Technology has brought us into significant level of interface computing life. Mobile phone is one of the classic examples to prove that member of society has been influenced by the advance of high technology. Generally, people are demanding extensive technology within the mobile phone in term of the operating system which the manufacturers offer. Handset users are seeking for the software which provide them with most simplified use but yet still high-tech. In 2001, Microsoft made a move by producing Windows CE Pocket PC OS which
Now that mobile phone has over 30 years of history, its market is quite so advanced. For smart phone vendors, the difficulty to differentiate their top range products is increasingly significant. There is a constant quest for mobile devices with always enhanced picture quality and vast screens, and hardware and software always more sophisticated for a improved consumer experience. It is onerous to stand out from the competition as they have to satisfy quite a few criterion, as the main fact that a mobile phone has to hold in one hand. At the same time, mobile apps have become an unavoidable element
Nokia is known as one of the world’s largest vendors of mobile phones. It is a great communications as well as multinational technology corporation that provides services and equipment regarding telecommunication. It goes without saying that its mobile phones are durable as well as reliable making it rule the mobile market for a long time. However, Android as a competitor had advanced to a level that Nokia features were becoming irrelevant in the global Smartphone market (Becker, Mladenow, Kryvinska, & Strauss, 2012).
Even though mobile phones have been in operation for three decades now, a fierce competition between mobile platforms has been going on since the spread of smart phones, which started in 2010. This struggle basically divided the world into supporters of iOS and Android giants, with others going for three more giants like Blackberry OS, Windows Phone 7, and Symbian. In fact, mobile platforms deal not exceptionally with smart phones, but also operate software on other portable devices like tablets or laptops. A must-have in a fast-paced world, mobile platforms have integrated into every sphere of life. Therefore, they are an extremely relevant and important issue to study in a research paper.
