4 Mobile Computing Trends That Are Right Now

Practically everyone owns a smartphone. The only people who hold up are those who are too old to care and those who don't want to pay for it. Because of its popularity, mobile computing is the fastest growing technology today.

Take a look at these four current mobile trends.

All-in-one devices push the boundaries of smartphones

People want the performance of a desktop but the portability of a cell phone. That's why researchers are working on all-in-one devices that go beyond smartphones. The combination of the Internet, GPS, accelerometers and personal profiles gives you a super mobile device that tells you everything, from where to find the nearest gas station to information on a historic building, by simply pointing your device at it.

These all-in-one devices also have near field communication

(NFC) technology. With this technology, users can pay for items with a mobile device instead of using a credit card. NFC chips are already in several smartphones, but this technology trend continues to grow as more people want to pay for things with their mobile devices. PayPal already has the technology to make this happen. It's simply about bringing businesses, wireless operators, and banks together to standardize processes.

Cloud computing improves mobility and data storage

Cloud computing is another major trend in mobile technology right now. It allows users to save files on the internet so they can be instantly accessed no matter what device you are using, including a smartphone. It doesn't matter where you are; The only thing that matters is that you can connect to the internet.

Companies love that their employees can do business on the go thanks to cloud computing on smartphones. This also gives employees the flexibility to work remotely and on the go. Organizations are also implementing their own device policies to save money and give employees more options. BYOD initiatives are innovative and affordable ways to make devices and phones available to small businesses.

Data security is a major concern in the cloud on mobile devices as it is easier for a hacker to access a person's personal files when information is stored in the cloud than on a computer's hard drive. Of course, millions of dollars have been invested in encryption and data security, but that doesn't mean you're completely protected.

Touchscreens are given texture and flexibility

Disney researchers have worked hard to create touchscreens that you can feel yourself with. Static electricity causes your brain to feel texture by simply touching the screen of your device. Apple has also looked at electric vibration technology and has pending several patents in this regard. According to Techradar, electric vibration technology will be implemented on touchscreen devices by 2016.

One reason many people are reluctant to switch to touchscreen phones is because they like the physical feel of the buttons so that they can operate their phone with minimal visual input. However, electric vibration technology offers these users the best of both worlds. You can feel the buttons but have all the benefits of a large touchscreen.

Smartphones are getting cool new power options

One of the biggest complaints from smartphone users is that normal activity drains the battery too quickly. In fact, many users cannot go a full day without charging their device. Fortunately, this will soon be a thing of the past. According to CTV News, there has recently been a breakthrough in battery technology that allows smartphone users to charge their phones by making movements like walking or tapping the screen. In fact, even your body heat could be enough to charge your phone in the future.

Other trending battery technologies include an ultra-fast charger that takes just 30 seconds to charge your device. It is expected to go mainstream in 2016. Researchers are also working on cellular technologies that allow one device to charge another.

These are just the current mobile trends. In the future, you may be able to control your smartphone with your mind (electroencephalography), integrate technology right into your body, and much more. The gap between science fiction and reality is widening every year.
