Smart phones

  1. 1. Smartphones<br />How are they affecting Productivity, Communication in the work place, Social engagement and have an effect in Education.<br />
  2. 2. What is a smart phone?<br />A smart phone is a device that lets you make telephone calls but also add in feature that you might find on your personal digital assistant (PDA) or a computer- such as the ability to send and receive e-mail and edit office documents for example.<br />In the beginning there were cell phone personal digital assistance (PDA), cell phones were used for making calls, while PDA like Palm Pilot were used as personal, portable organisers. <br />Eventually, PDAs gained wireless connectivity and were able to send and receive e-mails, PDAs then added cellular phone features while cell phone added more PDA like features. This resulted as a smartphone. <br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. Affects on Productivity<br />Firstly there are many positive attributes on smart phones.<br />Companies that are constantly developing these products are making huge profits, e.g Blackberry, HTC, iApple….<br />Economically wise, they have a huge impact in the economy because more money is punched into the economy when these items are bought.<br />In terms of competition, a lot of companies are now producing smart phones and these gadgets are continouslyupdated, creating greater competition for competitors.<br />Better products are being invented daily to make life more easier and reduce time consumption.<br />
  5. 5. Affects on Productivity<br />So while smart phones have changed many aspects of our daily lives in a more conveniet way, it isn’t always a good thing.<br />These a huge inbalance when it comes to cellphone companies and smartphone companies, because people opt to use smart phones instead of the ordinary cellphone, this effects the productivity of cellphone companies.<br />The increasing number of updated phones is to much for people to keep up with.<br />Companies using these smartphones for their workers need to constantly upgrade to keep up with technology costing them a lot of money.<br /> Most important these smart phones are expensive.<br />
  6. 6.
  7. 7. Communication in the workplace<br />Smartphones help workers to do their work fast, effectively and almost anywhere in the world.<br />It is no longer necessary for them to be at the office to send e-mails, faxes or to just sit behind a desk etc.<br />Smartphones help to increase productivity in a lot of business because they do not limit the worker to be in a office working all the times.<br />However smartphones can also have a negative on business, because worker don’t engage with eachother.<br />Sometimes networks are offline and business cannot access information on the smartphones slowing down productivity. <br />
  8. 8. Social Engagement<br />Applications such as Skype, Facebook, Mixit, Twitter help people to interact for free or at a low rate all over the world. <br />It is easy to talk live with your friends, family using smartphones with webcam <br />Simply they make life easier for everyone.<br />Moreover the cons of using a smartphones distant people from interacting with eachotherpersonally.<br />People tend to get addicted to these gadgets side tracking themselves from self-time and interaction.<br />
  9. 9. Education<br />Students find it easy to use smartphonesand are constantly waiting to upgrade putting pressure on their parents.<br />It is also convenient in terms of submitting work, accessing your school/personal portal.<br />It also affects results of workers, because most student pay more attention to these applications instead of focusing on work<br />
  10. 10. Personal views<br /> We can’t deny the fact that smartphones are fast taking over and these no way of reducing the usage of smartphonesor stopping companies from manufacturing them.<br />But overall I personally conclude that smartphone don’t really have a huge effect on productivity, social engagement etc<br />They actually make life easier. <br />
