RJ Jacquez was one of the bloggers I chose to follow and he blogged about smartphones out selling traditional cell phones for the first time in history. I’m not surprised by this because during this day and age smartphones are becoming more of a necessity. Smartphones are becoming more affordable so that can contribute to the sales increases also. RJ predicts that soon enough traditional cell phones will become nearly extinct and smartphones will be the “common” phone to have, which I agree with. Smartphones are not only a way to communicate, but a GPS, camera, and computer in your pocket as well. You have the world at your fingertips and can find any information on your phone that would be able to look up on your computer at home. This can be so helpful to an engineer, for example if you needed to look up metal specifications, formulas or even send photos of your project to colleges you would be able to do so instantaneously with a smartphone. The manufacturing cost of smartphones is also decreasing so smartphones are becoming more economical to consumers. This article also commented on Microsoft overtaking Blackberry for the third place in smartphone market share, behind Android and Apple.
Hey, This is Paul Persaud again writing straight to you reporting from the Motorola Official. They have researched and released the cheapest usable smartphone for our generation. Usually everything you’re looking for in a smart phone without a contract ends up costing you around $500 right? Nope, not any more. With the new Moto E, you can do all your favorite smartphone applications, and they have a beautiful screen, and a rigid phone. At $129 USD (no strings attached), you’ll be up and running in no time. In the industry today, certain fruit-based phones have sold their phones with a certain premium: If you can afford the $729, you received this status icon of a phone with stylish edges and a simple OS. Why can’t you get that same experience for under $200? Today that question has been answered.
“To quote Sinclair: “We really think that mobile access to the Internet and everything that the Internet brings — education, job opportunities, social connections, entertainment – should be available to everyone. Our hope is that we’re delivering that kind of freedom and access to people. They could find work, or they could sell something they’ve built, or stay in touch with their daughter who left home for the first time – that’s a powerful thing, and not everyone can afford the highest end device to pull that off.””
