From Tablets to… [OPINION]

Remember when technology was “Did you get the new phone that is out now?”.  Just like that everyone was in the mobile phone hype until another gadget got center stage.  As technology evolves, so does man’s interest and fascination with it.  Many technological gadgets came out but only few really stuck around and got our attention.  The evolution of technology depends a lot on curiosity and fascination.

Mobile phones were in very high demand when they just came out, but they were basically just different in design. Remember when the first one came out?  They were so big that nowadays we can’t imagine walking around with such a thing.  What started to happen was that the manufacturers started focusing on the size of the mobile phones.  All of a sudden the phones got smaller and smaller that it almost weighed less than a feather and it actually had to be held with three fingers.  The trend was to have a small phone.  It started to get ridiculous! Do you remember these crazy times?

As just the size and design of a mobile phone started to get “boring”, the concept of improving its functionality started to get more attention.  And then started the era of having a smartphone.  A phone that doesn’t just provide the ability to call, but one that also can do other things.  As web development was also very interesting at the time, the two worlds combined.  The internet met mobile phone. Blackberry was one of the first that really made an impression especially on the professional world, coming with multiple functions for users to plan their activities and chat with others (Blackberry messenger).  With the collaboration of the internet with mobile phones, there came much more.  Regular mobile phones have become antiques.  Do you still have a regular phone?

The door opened to apps, the wonderful world of apps.  At first it was Apple which ruled this platform without seriously being challenged by any real competitor.  As people flocked to get the newest smartphone, technology got pushed even further and the competition on the app market got more fierce.  Customers were benefiting from these advances in technology and the competition brought “better” prices.  How many apps do you have on your smartphone?


As the mobile phone evolved to smartphone, the rise of another gadget was underway.  The rise of the tablet!  Just like the previously mentioned gadgets, this one came by storm.  The introduction of the tablet to the gadget scene was almost a instant success.  Once again Apple was at the fore front.  Nowadays the tablet seems to get integrated in almost everything we do. It is even in some school systems. Just click here if you don’t believe it.  It is practically everywhere and is proving its value.  As it is saving users a lot of paperwork which in essence means less cutting down of trees.  This makes the use of a tablet in businesses eco friendly in long term.  Are you hip to the tablet hype?

Just as the tablets got on the scene, another gadget is on its way to the stage.  Google tv and Apple tv, shall this be the new gadget that will catch on like a wildfire?  if not what do you think will be the next top gadget?
