Have you noticed that in past few years we hear less and less about personal computers and laptops, while at the same time the mobile industry updates are big part of our daily news?
Of course it is understandable with all the exciting new technologies like smartphones and tablets, which probably add a bit more value than bigger and more robust devices like computers.
Highly likely that we will never get to the point where personal computers are actually gone from our everyday life. While not being physically on our table, the hardware pieces are part of other devices like TVs, home automation systems or if you will – smart mirrors which display you morning news while brushing your teeth. Majority of the work tasks can be already now solved using smartphones, while leaving the computing part to the enormous server parks, which common people will never see during their lifetime.
Mobile World Live has stated, that comparing to the last year same time in the second quarter, there has been shipped almost double number of mobile devices from 156.5 million units to 229.6 million in Q2 2013 (read more). Understandably, where there is a demand, there is a offer – so actually that tells us that people all around the world are willing to buy more and more smartphones. Of course at some regions, developing countries, it is just a new wave of growing trend, while in Europe, USA and China people probably are exchanging their old devices or choosing new smartphones and tablets over a new laptops or desktop computers.
Does this growing number of mobile devices also mean more SMSs being sent all over the world? I certainly hope so, since the SMS has proven to be one of the best ways of communication with a personal touch, over a distance, next to the phone calls.
