Mobile Technologies

Mobile technologies is a broad classification used to describe devices including regular cell phones, smart phones, or any of the numerous tablets (such as iPads) currently available. When trying to answer “Which is the best mobile device?” you first need to assess “What is the primary use?” Other factors that need to be considered are:

  • Overall user experience: Will the device do what you need it to do?
  • The content ecosystem: What kinds of mobile content can you access with your device? What apps are available to you?
  • Device ecosystem: How do mobile devices differ when it comes to their Operating Systems? (e.g., Apple iOS vs. Android OS)
