Many people today don’t just have a mobile phone, they have a smartphone like an Phone or a Blackberry. But is it a great invention? I think there are both advantages and disadvantages.
The first advantage is that people who have an iPhone or a Blackberry can access information immediately. For example, they can read and write emails, read newspapers online, look up any topic, can do video conferences, play,…
Secondly, I think that a smartphone like a Blackberry is a good innovation in the business world. Nowadays, it is not necessary to work in an office because if you have a Blackberry you can answer calls and emails wherever you want.
But on the other hand, I think there are people that can’t use these smartphones moderately, they don’t disconnect and they also have social problems. People of this kind use their smartphones all day long and when they are with a group of friends they are looking the screen, chatting, playing, reading, etc. They disconnect from what is around them.
Thirdly, workers with a blackberry have to work overtime because they can check emails at any time. Sometime this is a problem because they can’t disconnect from work on holiday or days off. If something happens when the worker is not in the office the boss and his/ her colleagues try to contact her through this blackberry.
In conclusion, having a smartphone like an iPhone or a Blackberry is a great invention for people but the important thing is how you use them.
