Smartphones: Good or bad for society?

Shayla Simmons

History of the mobile phone
Mobile phones are a device that can make and receive telephone calls and text messages over a radio link while moving around a wide geographic area. It does so by connecting to a cellular network provided by a mobile phone operator, allowing access to the public telephone network.
Nobody ever would have thought how fast, and how much cell phones could change into a smartphone. Now phones are so much smarter then humans.
Phones smarter then humans
Smartphones, are mobile phones built on a mobile operating system, with more advanced computing capability and connectivity than a regular mobile phone.
The first hand-held cell phone was demonstrated by John F. Mitchell and Dr Martin Cooper of Motorola in 1973, using a handset weighing around 2.2 pounds. The first phone to be available commercially in 1983 was the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x.
The next smartphone will be more easier as well as efficient for user to use. The future phone will have a 10 to 15 watts of energy cutting charging times down to just an hour. While so much power would normally cause smartphones to overheat and combust, a new control chip can handle the temperature issues.
The first smartphones combined the functions of a personal digital assistant. Later models added functions consisting of portable media players, low-end compact digital cameras, pocket video cameras, and GPS navigation units. Many modern smartphones also include high-resolution touchscreens and web browsers that display standard web pages.
The term "smartphone", however, did not appear until 1997, when Ericsson, a technology company that provides and operates telecommunications networks, described its GS 88 "Penelope" concept as a Smart Phone
Simon was the first smartphone. Simon had features of a cell phone, pager, fax machine, and computer into an 18-ounce black brick. The touchscreen had icons you tapped, or poked with a stylus, for e-mail, calculator, calendar, and a clock. It featured predictive typing that would guess the next characters. And it had apps, but not as many as we have today. Apps including a camera, maps, and music.
It would take a couple more years before anyone called a cell phone “smart,” and a further five years before the iPhone was released. Simon retailed for $899 and sold approximately 50,000 units. If you were a heavy data user, you had about 60 minutes before you needed to recharge it.
Smartphones now: Wow how they have changed.
An article found on the web titled The Impressive Effects of Smartphones on Society, mentions that 10% if not more of people walking down a busy street are doing something with their smartphone. The ability to connect to the internet has enable us to have a more relaxed and entertaining lifestyle.
80% of all smart phone owners check their smart phone within 15 minutes of waking up. About all smartphone users use their phones as alarm clocks.

How many wake up in the middle of the night grab their phones and check to see what's going on in the social network world?
Smartphones could also be related into your work life. Samsung released a smartphone with a built in pico projector, that enables users to project a presentation right off of their phones.

Why carry a laptop around or a USB flash stick when you're presentations is always in your pocket? There should be no excuse of why you're presentation isn't ready.
41% of all Americans use Facebook, and on top of that, smart phone users check their Facebook an average of 14 times a day.
As if even that wasn’t enough, 50% of smart phone users also check their Facebook at the movies
Communicating with others...... NOT!
Smartphones were built in such a way for others to communicate more efficiently. In some way that is true in many ways, but are you really communicating with other people? Don't you feel obligated to ignore someone through a text and not feel bad about it?
What's the capital of Alaska?
Who cares, you have a smartphone, GOOGLE IT!
I have an App for that!

What's next??
Smartphones will continue to progress and progress in the world. Apple comes out with a different iPhone every year.
Different phone providers continue to compete with each other.
Augmented reality. Using the camera on your phone, point it somewhere live to get an information overlay of where you can find the nearest cafes or dining places.
3-D Screens and Holograms, making the screen resolution more sharper and more clear.
Flexible screens. Screens can be folded or unfolded for users preferences to watch movies, play videos games, or make your screen the size you prefer it to be.
