30 things you no longer need because of Smartphones [Video] and State of Mobile 2013 [Infographic]

IMG-20131223-WA0001While sipping my morning tea, in this cold Bangalore morning (though not as cold as I would like it to be), I was scanning the tweet stream on my Galaxy Note 2, and found this video, which talks about the ‘30 Things You No Longer Need Because of Smartphones.’ I could not stop but wonder, how smartphones have invaded our lives. I reflected on where I used my phone in the last 24 hours and I was surprised that I had not touched my Thinkpad and Nexus 7 at all. All right, I confess, I did use the Nexus 7. But, all my office and personal emails, ticket booking for my travel, PNR status, stock updates, dictionary, weather updates, video calling…everything gets done on my smartphone.

One of my friends, bought a GPS device a while ago and now is wondering what to do with it, as the Google maps on his Android smartphone, does a great job of navigation and much more. This is just one case on how smartphones are making a lot of other devices obsolete. This is incredible.

Let me share the video with all of you

Smartphones have transformed our lives and not just the general lives, these devices, with the power of social media, are changing the way business is done. Read: We don’t buy alone! Anymore!

In one of my previous blogs, I mentioned how IBM is bringing mobile revolution, and the reports from all over the world are reconfirming the vision. As per the latest Cyber Monday Report, in 2013, the mobile traffic grew to 31.7% of all online traffic, increasing by 45% over 2012. This clearly shows how the smartphone is fast becoming the medium of choice for consumers.

As per digitalbuzzblog.com, here are the latest mobile growth statistics for 2013, a complete in-depth summary of where the mobile market is now at, including things like mobile phone adoption rates, smartphone penetration rates, most popular mobile browsers, mobile/tablet sales figures, media consumption habits on mobile devices .etc all with the latest 2013 data on the growth of mobile… The infographic was created by the guys at Super Monitoring. Here are a few key statistics;
