Smart phones

A smartphone, or smart phone, is a mobile phone with more advanced computing capability and connectivity than basic feature phones.

Early smartphones typically combined the features of a mobile phone with those of another popular consumer device, such as a personal digital assistant (PDA), a media player, a digital camera, or a GPS navigation unit. Modern smartphones include all of those features plus the features of a touchscreen computer, including web browsing, Wi-Fi, and 3rd-party apps and accessories.

The most popular smartphones today are powered by Google's Android and Apple's iOS mobile operating systems.

The first mobile phone to incorporate PDA features was an IBM prototype developed in 1992 and demonstrated that year at the COMDEX computer industry trade show. A refined version of the product was marketed to consumers in 1994 by BellSouth under the name Simon Personal Communicator. The Simon was the first device that can be properly referred to as a "smartphone", even though that term was not yet coined. In addition to its ability to make and receive cellular phone calls, Simon was also able to send and receive faxes and e-mails through its touch screen display.

In 2007, Apple Inc. introduced the iPhone, one of the first mobile phones to use a multi-touch interface. The iPhone was notable for its use of a large touchscreen for direct finger input as its main means of interaction, instead of a stylus, keyboard, or keypad typical for smartphones at the time. 2008 saw the release of the first phone to use Android called the HTC Dream. Android is an open-source platform founded by Andy Rubin and backed by Google. Although Android's adoption was relevantly slow at first, it started to gain widespread popularity in 2010.

Both of these operating systems led to the drop of the previous leading companies. Microsoft, for instance, started a new OS from scratch, in the form of Windows Phone, which is now the third largest OS. Nokia abandoned Symbian and partnered with Microsoft to use Windows Phone on its smartphones. Palm was bought by Hewlett-Packard, turned into webOS, and later demised. BlackBerry also made a new system from scratch, BlackBerry 10.

A smartphone is a mobile phone that can do more than other phones. They are seen as a computer but are small enough to fit in someones hand. Today, most smartphones are able to run more than one program at the same time which helps the user complete tasks quicker and easier. Users are also able to get more programs from the manufacturer, such as the Apple App Store and Google Play which can help them complete special tasks. The majority of smartphones run on Apple iOS or Google Android. Many use Windows Phone or BlackBerry OS.

Data communication has become faster. Smart phones can send and receive data much faster than older phones. The industry uses different standards to label the data transmission rates. 2G was introduced in 1991. 2G means 2nd Generation. 2G phones transmit data at about the same speed as a 56kbit/s (kilobits per second) dial-up modem would get.

3G was introduced in 2002. Depending on where they are, 3G phones vary in speed between about 200kbit/s to 14Mbit/s (megabits per second). This is comparable to a DSL or low end cable modem speed. Most smart phones use 3G technology to make them fast enough to practically use internet and other data features. Faster 4G neworks operate in many places, with speeds estimated as fast as 100Mbit/s to 1Gbit/s gigabit per second. This would be as fast as some computer networks that use ethernet. Many smart phones introduced after 2010 use 4G technology.

As of 2013, 65 percent U.S. mobile consumers own smartphones. The European mobile device market as of 2013 is 860 million. In China, smartphones represented more than half of all handset shipments in the second quarter of 2012.

Another study conducted in June 2013 concluded that 56% of American adults now owned a smartphone of some kind. Android and iPhone owners account for half of the cell phone user population. Higher income adults and those under age 35 lead the way when it comes to smartphone ownership.

Worldwide shipments of smartphones topped 1 billion units in 2013 (up 38% from 2012's 725 million) while compromising a 55% share of the mobile phone market in 2013 (up from 42% in 2012).

Well The Simon was the first system that can be effectively generally known as a "smartphone", even though that phrase was not yet created. Moreover to its capability to make mobile telephone phone calls, Simon was also able to deliver and get faxes and e-mails through its touchscreen technology display
