Cell Phone Trends

Cell-phone manufacturers are developing new and more advanced models of their handsets at a breakneck pace. Just a few years ago, people were thrilled by the notion of simply carrying a phone around with them. Just having a mobile phone was a status symbol—they were new, expensive, and kind of elitist. Today, pretty much everyone has a mobile phone, and even some young children carry around phones. And when I say “young” I mean under 12. It goes without saying that most, if not all, card-carrying teenagers already have their own cell phones and are, of course, masters of the text-messaging phenomenon.

Today's state-of-the-art mobile phones typically include fully functional calendars, address books, customizable ringtones, games, Web browsers, email clients, text messaging, digital cameras, and more. Tomorrow's phones will continue evolving and will offer these features and more. Although sub-megapixel, blurry images are the norm on today's camera phones (resulting in substandard photographs), there are phones slated for introduction over the next year with multi-megapixel digital cameras incorporated into their designs.
