And here in 2021, your smartphone can do just about everything for you.  And while it has surpassed all expectations, you can be assured that this is one industry which won’t stop here with something always waiting in the wings. 

The Impact of the Pandemic

2020 has been a year which has catalyzed vast adoption of mobile technologies and made us transition from just using technology to living technology quite literally. We have fallen back on our phones this year more than we ever have in the past. From grocery shopping to online payments to e-learning or online consulting with the doctor, our mobile devices became our digital clinics, pharmacies, virtual classrooms, grocery shops, and not to forget a big source of entertainment.

The smartphone continues to prove ever-so beneficial even during the current coronavirus situation in India since it allows you to track Covid cases around you (Via Aarogya Setu), schedule your vaccinations, check availability of hospital beds, schedule video calls with your physician to name a few.

In the aftermath of the pandemic, mobile technology will continue to take its place in the smallest aspects of our lives cutting through areas we never imagined. The whole smartphone experience is expected to take a huge leap in 2021 with features like AI and AR which are carving their niche here.
