If you are starting up an online business of some sort, you will need a smart phone to succeed in today’s world. Too many sites to keep track of and too many people to answer to. If you don’t do what others are doing, you will simply fail or will have to have many staff to do the work manually. I personally have an iPhone and a blackberry. I use them for different purposes because each tend to have different features that I need.
Today, the CEO of Apple announced that 1.5 Billion Applications has been downloaded for iPhones since Apple Store went alive about a year ago. This is huge for the mobile industry. You can pretty much find an application for any need you may have. I use my iPhone for many purposes – mainly to keep me connected to my web businesses, Twitter, blog, friends and family.
If you are starting up a business and if you want to succeed, you need to provide better customer support to your clients – this means you need to be connected all the time. You need to be able to manage your clients properly, rather than having your clients email you all over the place. A smart phone will allow you to do all of this on a single device.
In a statement released today, Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple said “The App Store is like nothing the industry has ever seen before in both scale and quality. With 1.5 billion apps downloaded, it is going to be very hard for others to catch up.”
He is right, blackberry is just getting started with applications and at the moment it is far difficult to get the right application. With an iPhone, you just have to search and download – it is already out there – multiple choices for each search. Majority of the applications are free as well or just a dollar or two.
Look around and do some research and get the tool that will really help you excel in your online ventures. Latest smartphones, including the iPhone pretty much acts like a personal computer in your pocket – you can login from anywhere and just use it like a computer at home. If that is not enough, use the VNC application and login to your own personal PC at home with an iPhone – yes I do this whenever I need to locate a file or do something that I can’t do on an iPhone.
All in all, this is great and you must have it…
