Remember the time where you had to carry around a basic feature phone, a music player, a GPS, a handheld console like a GameBoy, and also a bunch of stationary like notepads and pens? We all do. We also still carry around all of the same functionality today, except without the multitude of items with only a single smartphone replacing them all – and in most cases, doing it better.
It isn’t just all about the rise of smartphones and computer tablets however, there are also a rise in many other devices that make our everyday lives more and more convenient. Smartwatches and wireless headphones and headset are such great examples of technological innovations that make our lives easier; keeping us connected and free from wires – at the same time.
Smartphones have changed over the years to become something of a luxury to a necessity for almost everyone. It’s the centralized hub for all of our work, entertainment, and communication. It is quite literally an all-in-one device. In the past we had to carry around a bevy of items just to do everything, but with a smartphone today, we just need that one.
Smartphones come in many different shapes and sizes, starting from those with a small 4-inch display to massive 6-inch displays. Like computers, smartphones also have different specifications, some designed to be high end flagship models while some are designed to be the affordable entry-level smartphones. There’s a smartphone out there for everyone.
When Apple first introduced the Apple iPad, many different computer tablets running on Android operating systems flooded the market, offering affordable and different kinds of tablets for many different users. Tablets have very similar functions to smartphones, but generally deliver on greater media experiences due to the larger screens and more power.
There are many tablets out there with many different screen sizes, ranging from the compact 7-inch displays to 12-inch display models, which are usually paired with a keyboard dock, making it look more like a laptop. Samsung even has a massive 18.4-inch display Android tablet that promise to deliver immersive experiences when it comes to entertainment and productivity.
Smartwatches are basically little miniaturized computer devices that you wear on your wrist like a watch. They tell you the time like a watch as well, but they also have the added functionality of being an interface of sorts to your smartphone without you have to access your smartphones. Notifications can be seen and replied to through the use of a smartwatch in times where pulling out a smartphone is unnecessary.
