Mobile Gadget Trends That Are Changing Our Lives
Like the iPod, many mobile gadgets are revolutionizing the industry and the way we perform our daily activities. Here are some mobile gadget trends that, whether we like or not, are changing our lives.
1. Smaller and lighter gadgets. Have you noticed lately that as technology becomes more advanced, the gadgets become smaller in size? Less than three years ago, Apple revealed the infamous Macbook Air, which was so thin and light that it could fit inside an envelope. Today, most computer manufacturers have at least introduced their own version of ultra portable notebook. Commonly known as netbooks, these small but capable computers have gained fame amongst businessmen and travelers because their compact size makes them easy to carry around. The UMID Netbook, for example, is so small that it can fit inside your shirt pocket!
2. Smarter and more productive gadgets. As people become more mobile, many manufacturers are now offering products that are packed with a wide range of features for increasing productivity. “Smartphones”, a new generation of mobile gadgets, are gaining popularity for their all-in-one features. Organizing tasks, creating Office documents on the go and surfing the Web are several examples of activities that are supported by smartphones. These smart gadgets are also faster and more reliable than before, with increased battery life and better processors, making them a great companion at work or at home.
3. Socially connected gadgets. Nowadays, everyone is into social networking. With sites like Facebook and Twitter, everyone is encouraged to connect with people around them. This urge for social connection and information sharing has made many manufacturers of mobile gadgets include social networking functions in their products. Many gadgets now support instant messaging, document sharing, VoIP calls and video conferencing, Web surfing and even location-based services.
Undoubtedly, these mobile gadget trends have changed the way we live. Because of these trends, communication is easier and faster and productivity is increased.
