These days, what are you more likely to leave behind: your wallet or your mobile phone? Better yet, can you remember what life was like before mobile phones?
With technology moving at supersonic speed, the mobile phone has definitely evolved to fill many needs. And these changes have not just made life easier, but also more interesting and exciting. Gone are the days when your mobile phone is only capable of sending text messages, making calls, or composing ring tones.
Fast forward to the 21st century: Your mobile phone continues to take leaps and bounds, providing you more innovative features and services you never thought could be possible. Enter mobile browsing, or internet on your mobile phone, which harnesses two technologies we Pinoys love: our mobile phones and the Internet. It also opens up an entire world of connectivity to us.
Take email, which is now an important part of our lives. We need to keep our correspondence up to date. Accessing email through your mobile can be done anytime, anywhere—and that means staying connected, always.
Who doesn’t want to know the latest? News. Movie schedules. The traffic situation. Latest UAAP game schedules. Most downloaded songs. Mobile surfing lets us find out what we need when we need it without having to search for a Wi-Fi connection or a PC just to be kept in the loop.
Then there are a myriad of mobile phone applications, from game, travel, reference, lifestyle, and even specialized apps for just about every need. You can download these into your smartphone—for example, if you need to read documents on the road while commuting from one meeting to another, you can try Springpad or mobile versions of Adobe Reader. Or you can share photos, store and organize recipes, play games with friends—it’s all out there, on the mobile web.
Speaking of websites, you’ve probably got a Facebook, Twitter, or Multiply account and can’t probably stand it when you don’t get to log in for a day. Mobile browsing allows us to let our family and friends online know what we’re thinking, doing, watching, and liking—by the minute, wherever we are.
