The smartphone rage is catching up in the country, especially in urban India, says a survey conducted by Nielsen Informate Mobile Insights. There are 27 million smartphone users in urban India – a total of 9 per cent of the entire mobile user base in the urban demography.

India is considered to be one of the fastest growing mobile markets with around 900 million mobile phone users, according to TRAI estimates. The country’s mobile handset market witnessed 6 per cent growth in the first quarter of 2012 while the smartphone market in the country surged by 17 per cent, says market research firm Gartner. As consumer usage on smartphones goes much beyond voice calling and texting, that market has become a veritable hotspot for content consumption and mobile advertising.

“For the first time ever, we have seized the opportunity that smartphones hold for mobile advertising in India. It now enables marketers to increase investments in the mobile medium, catering to a large enough market that consumes both rich media and advertising,” says Farshad Family, MD (Media) of Nielsen India.

The survey has also covered the usage pattern of smartphone users. While 22 million people use their smartphones for social networking, 24 million use it for online searching, 21 million for looking up app stores and 19 million each use these devices for chatting and mailing, respectively. Around 16 million users view streaming videos; another 16 million use smartphones for maps and navigation while 8 million each use it for banking & finance, travel, shopping and accessing Web…...

...Back in the old days humans had cell phones that were mostly blocky and too big to put in a pocket. Service was an issue back then as well because cell phones were just barely introduced into the world. Today however, smartphones have changed everything. Smartphones are cell phones with other capabilities such as that of a PDA or a hand-held game device. Everything that most people use everyday is crammed into one small, sleek looking device that has transformed the way we look at technology. The smartphone continues to improve as new features such as the GPS, video chat, wifi, etc. are being a part of the phone.

Durbin, Ph.D.) From the Book of Ecclesiastes, the 5th verse of the 9th chapter, we read, "For the living know that they shall die." Life is but a short journey from the cradle to the grave. For some death comes early in life, for others in the middle years and for some it comes with old age. Whatever period of life death occurs, it comes to all. Death is the great equalizer for it comes to the rich and poor, the loved and unloved, the happy and the sad, to the male and female, the good and the bad. In some cases death can be postponed or delayed, but eventually it comes to all. None of us are exempt as we realize that one day, we too must die. Dying, death and bereavement are fundamental and pervasive aspects of the human experience. We can only achieve fullness of living by understanding and appreciating these realities. The absence of such understanding and appreciation may result in unnecessary suffering, loss of dignity, alienation and diminished quality of living. Though education about dying, death and bereavement should be...

... of industry marketing for Intermec, an Everett, Wash.-based manufacturer of mobile devices such as handheld computers, bar-code printers, scanners, RFID tags, and voice solutions. Mobile devices can boost picking and packing productivity and accuracy, and help provide a safe, ergonomic, hands-free environment for workers—ultimately resulting in improved customer service for end users. The newest ruggedized, handheld mobile computers boast an array of functionalities for improved warehouse productivity and flexibility: 1D and 2D bar-code scanning at both close and long ranges; built-in cameras; RFID capabilities; and voice-enabled functionality. And the current generation of mobile "smart" printers contains built-in intelligence that enables them to produce labels without being hard-wired to a computer system. But the newest trend in the distribution sector is what Stubbs calls "total mobile solutions." Instead of opting for just one mobile device, companies are embracing a suite of mobile tools that work together to boost warehouse performance. "Many companies are combining mobile computers and scanners with mobile printers; or pairing voice solutions with mobile printing; or using mobile computers with voice capabilities instead of a dedicated voice device," Stubbs explains. This approach cuts down on workers having to travel back and forth between fixed stations and instead allows them "to take the process to the product," he notes. The Rise of the......

... internet-enabled consumers in eight countries - China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and the US - shine light on this fact. To achieve high performance in the handset market, it will become crucial to focus on emerging countries. A disproportionately high percentage of usage and spending will take place in these countries during the next several years. Japanese consumers have historically been early adopters of wireless technologies. But with the overall economy stagnating, and the nation's population already heavily equipped with consumer electronics, purchase patterns are reversing. During the past year, only one in five (19%) Japanese respondents bought a mobile handset, compared with the global average of 49%. And 16% plan to buy a mobile handset next year, compared with 36% worldwide. Just 4% plan to purchase a Smartphone - more than five times below the 21% global average. The reversal in purchase patterns could partly be explained by a slowing upgrade cycle. In neighboring China, by contrast, more than twice as many respondents plan to invest in mobile data service for laptops (44% vs., the 21% global average) and mobile data services for mobile phones (41% vs. 22%) over the next year. And when it comes to watching videos on mobile devices, 63% of those surveyed in China viewed clips occasionally - nearly twice the 35% global average. Overall, 52% of emerging country respondents is likely to buy a Smartphone next year compared to only 20% of...

Smartphone Addiction

...Smartphone addiction “Hold on, I'm getting a text………..Right, so you were saying…wait, I'm getting another one.” Over the last few years smartphones have become an increasingly important part of our daily lives. Research shows that around 1 in 5 around the world owns a smartphone and that number will only increase over the years. In India the number is slightly lower at 1 in 10 but its high growth rate will soon bring it on par with the global average. This has led to a situation where a flip phone is looked on with the same surprise as it was when released. Today we have found many uses for a smartphone, right from as an alarm clock to wake us in the morning to a music player to entertain us while travelling to a portable gaming device to help us get past those boring Wednesday afternoon classes. We even use it as a second screen while we are watching TV simply because it feels unnatural not to have it lying around. We have become so used to it that it’s no longer considered impolite to take out a phone while having a conversation with real people around us. It’s a sad irony that the technology that was developed to help mankind save time is now the biggest reason for wastage of time. Many of us are guilty of just absent mindedly tapping at our screens pointlessly moving between apps just to pass time. Access to multiple messaging apps has made us more impatient than ever as...

Here are some ways to get your life back, now. But are we really addicted? Some of the signs that you have to take in consideration to declare yourself an addict may be: * Do you reach for your smartphone first thing in the morning? * Do you check your smartphone last thing at night? * Do you break off conversation to check your smartphone immediately when a new notification comes in? * Do you take your smartphone to the bathroom with you? * Do you sometimes play with your smartphone while people are talking to you? * Do you constantly find new uses for your smartphone to legitimize your attachment? * Do you check your smartphone while watching a movie at the cinema? * Do you refuse to ever turn your smartphone off? * Do you keep your smartphone visible and within reach at all times? * Do you sometimes just look at your smartphone even although it isn’t doing anything? * Do you panic when you misplace your phone, even for a minute? * Do you have to charge your smartphone more than once a day?

Instead he threatened Abu; he will beat Abu using his smartphone if Abu did not answer his question. My topic for today is the Smartphone. What do you know about smartphones? Actually a smartphone is a type of mobile phone that can perform many of the operations that a computer does, such as accessing internet.
