Nick and Danny discuss the future of mobile phones, whether they will be something we have in our pockets or bags or whether it might be an on head or over head device or could it be smaller and something embedded in us?
The Mobile Phone Story:
History & Journey
Chat apps / food apps / Voice
Video and front face camera first activities
Devices evolution from large phone to glasses to watch
1b iPhone users
2-4b android users
The average usage of mobile is well over 3hours per day - some suggesting their usage is over 10 hours per day
Think about: Every year Apple updates a core set of features and millions update every year and the brilliant job Apple Product people and Marketers have done in convincing millions to upgrade every 12-18 months.
Why Listen Today:
With the latest iPhone releases & latest iOS updates, we are seeing devices become more useful and more personalised, we are looking at the best ever devices and they are getting smarter for us as users and for the businesses connected to them.
Huge Milestone Hit! TikTok hitting 1b users in record time - it wouldn't have ever been possible without the smartphones and the addiction engines that they are to us now.
As we previously discussed, is AR / VR the future? Is it feasible really?
There has been a lot of talk around the metaverse and the future of living in a metaverse, but will a mobile device be essential in this always on digital world?
Jack Dorsey (Twitter & Square CEO) only uses his mobile device never uses a PC or laptop
