How do you predominately access the internet? Is it on a traditional desktop, mobile phone, or a tablet device? 2014 was a signifiant year according to Smart Insights. Why you ask? The graphic below shows what happened.
This is the year that mobile computing overtook the traditional desktop. Although mobile has more popularity, it goes without saying there are some things that the desktop has an advantage over the mobile and vice versa.
The computer has advantages in processing power, full featured operating system, upgrade options, and software options. This is in addition to costs. A computer has a one time purchase. A mobile plan may now be nothing more than monthly fees. However, in the long term, it is easily conceivable that the mobile user will end up paying far ore for their device.
The mobile device has a high degree of accessibility as some devices stay no further than one arm’s distance apart. Speed doesn’t compare between the majority of personal computers and mobile devices which operate with flash memory. Starting a mobile to boot the device is typically faster on a mobile device. There are less parts to power, translating to better battery life.
This all in mind, a new trend. The trend is people moving away from the traditional desktop computer and moving towards mobile devices. Initially, it was the smartphone. The smart phone was supplemented with tablets. However as the phones have grown bigger, the bigger size phones are now supplanting the tablets. This trend will only increase as smartphones gain the following capabilities from this Wired magazine excerpt, “if a smartphone can do all the things PCs, digital cameras, camcorders, GPS navigation devices, MP3 players, and DVD players can, and more, then yes, smartphones could be the primary computing device for many people.”
Looking at the smart device operating systems themselves, they are increasingly becoming closer in terms of capability. An app that was used for particular device a few years ago, a non-of them present the other operating system. That is an increasingly no longer the case. Mobile apps that are present for Android are now also present for iOS and vice versa. These two operating systems compromise the overwhelming majority of smartphone operating systems.
