Mobile phones today have almost become indispensable. Given the technological advances, they currently double up as almost everything from your personal laptop to your inevitable notebook, your music system to even your very own health gear. The more the technology enables, the better the integration happens. Of course they have come a long way from the chunky heavy versions of the 1980s and 90s.
According to available data, as the 2000’s approached, these devices kept getting smaller and sleeker and continued to become more inclusive in their function profile. Improvisation began gradually in a step by step process, from starting to include games, music and then the smart phone of today started taking shape in version after version. Versatility has become synonymous with smart phones today and from socializing to business it is the most important accessory today.
