Watched a pretty interesting clip on the Toronto CTV New tonight, all abut Smart Phones…
Do you have one of these???
It seems Smart Phones are slowly taking us over, well, maybe not so slowly… There are 18% more smart phones on the market this year over last, and 54% of phones plans in Canada are now Smart!
Which ones are everyone using??? I will tell you!
Blackberry has 33% of the market, although they are currently losing market share if you can imagine that!
Next is the good old iPhone with 30% of the smart phone market.
Samsung has 13%, and they are growing market share.
My fancy little LG Smart Phone running on Windows 7 did not hit the list…
How much do you figure they cost??? Well, the average regular cell phone bill right now is between $30 and $50 a month, while the average smart phone bill is $70.00 and overall customer satisfaction with a smart phone is off the chart! People love them, and do not want to go back to a regular cell phone. Here is some more useless info, in every 48 hours, the average smart phone user sends/receives 26 texts and 9 phone calls. People also spend $3.20 a month on apps.
We have had one now for a year… what do I use it for???
Send/Receive many pictures…
Email – send/receive
GPS in a pinch… works great, shows all the roads and where you are.
Keep up with family and friends on Facebook
Use internet function while travelling around to find stores, restaurants, pizza joints, etc.
One of the main uses… camera, as it is always strapped to my side, and easy to use… you have to hold it still though!
Apps I use include:
Bloomberg live for financial info,
Bell mobile TV
CBC Hockey Results
CNN Money, more financial info.
Stop Watch… keeps track of how long my plane is in the air!
So overall, I think I use the smart phone quite a bit… I am very happy with my LG Smart Phone, wishing only it had the capability of being a Wi-Fi hotspot. This is not as important to me now that we have the iPad. I use it a lot more than I used the regular cell phone, that is for sure!
Let me know what you use your smart phone for!
Nice day here, but it did stay a bit cool, and was windy. I spent this morning servicing and changing oil on our Onan Diesel Generator.
I believe we used this generator more this year, than any other year we have been away.
Judy went into Woodstock and watched Gwenny get into her new bathing suit to go to swimming lessons in! She has this thing now that she has to wave at everyone…
Below Gwenny was not too impressed that she had to start the lesson wearing a life jacket, that seemed to be bigger than her!
I cut the lawn in at the kids house, and spent some time playing with Gwenny this afternoon.
