Consumers 'want phones that act like PCs'
25 February 2009 — 2:00 PM
The latest mobile phones need to be more like personal computers (PCs) to attract frequent users, one expert has advised.
According to a spokesman from Mformation Technologies, a mobile device management services provider, internet access and other data facilities are increasingly important to many.
Rob Dalgety, commercial director for the group, said consumers wanted a more "personalised mobile experience" and by providing PC-like applications, manufacturers and networks had been able to offer this.
"In addition, end user tastes and market demands are constantly changing, which means the applications and services that are presented to users need to be updated regularly," he explained.
Recent research from Tellabs suggested the use of mobile web services would continue to grow in 2009 - despite the economic climate.
The comments could inspire many to recycle used mobiles in favour of a more high-tech model such as the smartphones available from firms like BlackBerry, Apple, Samsung and LG.
