In Less Than Two Years, a Smartphone Could Be Your Only Computer | WIRED

With the current pace of mobile innovation, for many of us, a smartphone could become our only computer in the next two years.


This is further proof of what I–and several others (RJ Jacquez comes to mind) about the proliferation of mobile. It’s spreading and growing in leaps and bounds! It’s still growing and adapting and morphing, but yes, mobile is becoming more and more commonplace all the time. I know that I will always be likely to use mobile, but I’ll also be one of the last to let go of my laptop due to the kind of work that I do. Even so, this is a compelling article to show that technical communicators had better get on the ball with mobile, if they haven’t already!

  1. Interesting. I came across a 19 year old graduate recently who didn’t have an email address. He communicated soley through mobile apps like Snapchat, Twitter, etc. So maybe the “In less than two years” timeline is already here?

    1. Perhaps that graduate is an early adopter of a different kind! It’s much like those who use only a mobile phone, and have no landline at home. I admit to being one of those who can quite let go of my landline yet. I’m still using Windows 7, too (but looking forward to Windows 10!).
