The Future Is Mobile

Mobile technology in the form of smartphones, smart watches, tablet computers and wearable technology is about to take over our lives. Smartphones can already collect data on our level of fitness and state of health and link it to databases that update our medical, insurance and credit history.


Changes in technology and the development of smartphones and other types of mobile devices are changing everything, as technology, mobile computing and personal data merge.

The era of mobile technology is changing the world, reinventing industries, reordering businesses and reorganising people’s lives in a way that is creating a truly connected world.

Smartphones lead the way as they outsell desktop and laptop computers and will continue to do so as people and businesses embrace mobile technology for its range of applications and ease of use.

Tablet computers, albeit a distant second, are following a similar path as people engage with them to the detriment of personal computers and even laptops.

Future Fashions

Even though it is difficult to predict the future, particularly in relation to technology, it seems clear that a number of things will happen.

The number of mobile devices will grow as will the number of connected devices owned by each person ensures an always-on connectivity and quality of supply.

The production of smartphones will go mainstream as major mobile manufactures compete with each other and gain market share against the current high profile more specialist providers.

The smartphone and other mobile devices will provide greater numbers of applications at lower prices and connect billions of people in countries all around the world, rather than just those living in developed countries.

Wearable technology will grow too as products like Google Glass (although not Google Glass itself) and fitness tracking products will be used to manage and monitor our lives.

Wearable devices will also help businesses become more efficient, as customer payments are made seamless by smart devices that communicate with each other without the need for old-fashioned human interaction.

Smart devices will make information available in real time, which, in turn, will speed up decision-making and reduce waiting times and the need to retrieve basic personal or business details.

Medicine too will benefit from the widespread use of wearable devices, as doctors access detailed information about our lifestyle and health habits.

Regardless of circumstance the growing use of mobile technology will benefit the user and the provider, as greater amounts of information will be available to enable better judgement and decisions.

Mobile technology has made the breakthrough and is here to stay, as it is embraced by the mainstream economy and becomes an essential part of our everyday life.

SO, mobile technology is all around us and growing in its reach and influence as it collects our information and directs our lives in ways we never imagined.
