The Evolution of Mobile Technology
Mobile Technology Design
Through the years, we have seen how the mobile technology design is changing each time they release a new version. From the smallest-handy to the tinnest-wide screen. But do they really matter that much?
Mobile Technology design as it moves forward – thinner and lighter and wider.
Mobile tech: Thinner and lighter is no longer the biggest selling point
Summary:‘Our new gadget is the thinnest!’ The fact is, that doesn’t matter very much anymore.
Mobile technology has advanced so quickly it’s easy to forget that the gadgetry and the tech that drives it has only been around a few years. A decade ago smartphones as we know them now didn’t exist, tablets were giant, heavy slabs, and laptops didn’t like straying very far from a power outlet.
In the early days of mobile tech, with everything being big and bulky, making a device that was thinner and lighter than the rest was a big deal. OEMs and mobile enthusiasts were quick to proclaim that gadget X was the “thinnest in the world” or a similar claim. This was a legitimate response, as such devices were pushing the envelope of the genre.
That’s no longer the situation, with most smartphones, tablets, and laptops very mobile in nature. Most are extremely thin, very light, and have battery life rated in lots of hours or even days.
That’s why prospective customers no longer get excited about the gadget that is a millimeter thinner than the rest of the pack. The pack is already skinny enough to meet most everyone’s needs. A little less girth won’t improve the user experience, and just about everyone knows that.
With the exception of the iPhone, that’s why people don’t upgrade their devices in droves. Samsung and other major players in the mobile space are seeing that over and over. That new flagship phone or tablet doesn’t fly off the shelves as fast as expected.
