  • Bad effects of smart phones Addictive. Reduced productivity. Endangering the eye - staring at small text on the mobile screen can cause headaches, blurred vision, and dry eye. Disrupt sleep – the sound they make when you receive a message or an e-mail.
  • Effect of smart phones in education Cellular phones were an early problem when students were distracted by phone calls and texts messaging, but now smart phones can do just about anything your computer or laptop can, but in an easily concealable handheld device. Smart phones with computer-like capabilities are quickly becoming popular among college-aged cell phone users and are changing the way that students find, access and use information. Since smart phones pretty much allow you to do anything you want these days, having them in the classroom might be distracting students more than ever.  
  • Effect of smart phones in productivity The use of the BlackBerry has a negative impact in the workplace, such as not meeting deadlines due to the concentration of which is divided between work and the smart phone. All those applications, the endless e-mail checking and texting can keep you from real work, therefore reducing productivity.
  • Effect of smart phones in communication The presence of smart phones such as BlackBerry, iPhone or the Nokia Communicator is quite phenomenal because it offers many advantages in communication. Because greater functionality is built-in, smart phones can do things much more quickly than their standard mobile phone and PDA precursors. Frequent checking of email and internet applications takes time and attention away from interpersonal relationships. they are quick to communicate with and they make it very easy to stay in touch. they are quick because you can communicate in seconds with everybody, and also you can send important information and documents in seconds in any place. They make it very easy to stay in touch because you can write to friends easily and start a communication with them at any moment.
  • Effect of smart phones on social engagement Most people use their smart phones for social networking.
  • Research on smart phones According to research conducted by Research In Motion, BlackBerry devices and other smart phones may have had a huge impact on executive and employee productivity, but they also have a negative impact on work-life balance. The USA Today article reporting the research highlights how these devices increase efficiency, reduce stress, and “swing the work-life balance to the company side of the scales”. Some research suggests mobile phone radiation could trigger brain tumors and insomnia. Too often staring at the phone can also cause nausea and headaches.
  • Smart phone statistics Nielsen report that 31% of US mobile phone owners have a smart phone as of December 2010, and expect smart phones to become the majority by the end of 2011. eMarketer predicts that smart phone ownership will reach 43% of the US mobile population by 2015. According to figures for 2010 released by Gartner, smart phones accounted for 297 million (19%) of the 1.6 billion mobile phones sold that year. That&apos;s 72.1% more smart phone sales than in 2009.
