One must think that cell phones cannot get more advanced or developed. However, 10 years ago, people would not have expected to take pictures or video recordings or for that matter, to download unlimited music with their cellphones. The fact that these features are now common in almost every handset, makes us believe that mobile phone technology will not only develop but also advance to an extent considered impossible.
3G allows users to transfer data that ranges between 64 kilobytes and 285 kilobytes per second. It’s quite possible that soon there will be no difference between a mobile phone and a personal computer! One will not see the need to purchase an MP3 player due to the facilities and features available in the cell phone, which make it a virtual jukebox. Even though most cell phones already offer a plethora of games to choose from, newer technologies will allow users from different parts of the world to challenge and play with each other. The 3-D graphics will eliminate the need for the ownership of a PSP or for that case, a Play Station.
Due to the incorporation of the facility of GPS (Global Positioning System) in your cell phone, there will be no need for you to purchase a GPS for your car. It will show you the route you must take in order to reach your destination along with the above mentioned features. No getting lost again, ever.
However, using these facilities causes a major strain on the device’s battery. This problem is one of the major concerns related to the success of 4G. Manufacturers are certainly not stopping at 3G and have already begun developments for further, that is, advanced technology. With the help of 4G, the user will have the benefit of using his cell phone to purchase as well as sell items, online. It will also allow the user to interact with others with the help of uninterrupted video calls. Users will be able to watch television with the help of this technology, eliminating the need to sit in front of the idiot box for hours, specially with the advent of pay-per-view services.
