Good Morning Green Panda Friend. I hope that you all had a great weekend. Now it’s Monday morning and it’s time to get back to the daily grind. Some of us are back to work and some of us are back to school, some of us have to juggle both a work schedule and a school schedule. It is safe to say that no matter what we are up to today, we are all very busy people. Welcome to the next post in our “How Smart is Your Smartphone” series. Today we are discussing how our Smartphone can keep us connected to the world and help us make money.
Types of Smartphones
A Smartphone can be so much more than a cellular phone if we want it to be. Yes touch screens are fun, and yes downloading our own ringtone lets us personalize our cell phone as an accessory. But the other features of a Smartphone such as the calendar, internet access, camera, and social media applications allow us to stay in contact with our friends, family, and co-workers all the time from anywhere in the world.
Keeping up to date with Facebook, Twitter and Linked In directly from our Smartphone is very helpful. It is very flexible to have access to the entire World Wide Web directly from our Smartphone with the touch of a button. We no longer have to carry both a laptop and a cell phone because we have two in one in our Smartphone. I love the camera on my LG Smartphone; I don’t have to carry a photo camera and a cell phone because my Smartphone takes both videos and still pictures.
Smartphones for Business People
Smartphones do not only offer personal services, they also offer various services for business people. If you need to keep track of your schedule your Smartphone can help you go paperless. You no longer have to carry around a personal agenda because your Smartphone can store your daily schedule as well as personal reminders, notes, and a To Do List.
Business People have to be reachable at all times because their money depends on it. I personally think it’s great to be able to be reached by both Phone and Email at any time of the day all from my little LG Shine Plus with Google Smartphone.
I know that many Business People use BlackBerry as their professional Smartphone; but both Android phones and the iPhone are becoming very popular options for Business People. I personally use my Smartphone to send and receive text messages, but I do not use it (yet) to type documents.
I like having the option to research something on Internet from my Smartphone if I need to, and I like the fact that I don’t have to be next to a computer. I also downloaded the Application for my Financial Institution and I enjoy being able to make bill payments, verify my recent transactions, transfer funds, and check my account balances from my personal Smartphone.
Whether you are a student, an entrepreneur, an employee, or a business person a Smartphone can help you stay connected with the world.
