Picture Today's Hottest Cell Phone

Aug 25, 2008
The mobile generation is riding a new wave of convenience. Camera phones are quickly replacing basic cell phones as the gadgets of choice for today's on-the-move market.

These days, almost everyone has a cell phone. From Bluetooth and WAP-enabled phones to infrared-based models, we simply can't live without them. There are almost as many cell phones on the street as there are pedestrians. If you're not convinced, try a little experiment to prove it to yourself:

Have a friend call you on your cell phone while you stand on a crowded street corner or in a shopping mall. Then, when your handset rings, look around and see how many people are checking their phones. You really will be surprised.

It's hardly surprising that cell phones have caught on like wildfire in the bushes. These modern wonders offer mobile communication no matter where you are. Now, camera phones are the latest crazes igniting the market.

Today's cell phones are like the Swiss army knives of the communication world. With just a touch of a button they can be used to instantly send and receive e-mail and text messages, play games, surf the Internet and keep track of appointments. Best of all, each of these tasks can be accomplished while the user is out and about: at work, on the bus, in a restaurant or at a club. Now, the most exciting advancement in the average cell phone is the addition of photographing capabilities. The ability to take digital photographs from their handset is enough to send users out to the stores to replace their perfect good handsets with new camera phones.

Several years before North Americans saw the camera phone, the technology was introduced to the Japanese market. Asian cell phone users quickly took to these amazing gadgets, and camera phones hit North American shores a few years later. Even though they didn't catch on as quickly, the phones were widely marketed in the United States and eventually became popular. Once North American consumers began to realize how convenient it could be to have a cell phone combined with a camera, popularity began to climb. It's now predicted that camera phones may become the most popular consumer devices in history.

Industry analysts suggest that camera phones comprised about 12% of all cell phones sold in 2003, and those numbers are expected to climb rapidly. According to a research firm called IDC, more than 80 million camera cell phones have been sold throughout the world.

Some people wonder if it isn't just as easy to carry a cellular phone and a camera. The answers lie in life's fleeting moments. That once-in-a-lifetime opportunity when you run into a famous rock star at a roadside diner, or see a majestic sunset as you stroll along the coast. Those moments are certainly lost forever if your camera is locked in your car. With a camera phone, however, you can capture those moments and turn them into memories to last a lifetime. Best of all, you can use your cell phone to save and even email the photos to all of your friends.

Having a digital camera built into a cell phone may seem like a novelty or a luxury, but there's no better way to capture life's most perfect moments, and hold them for a lifetime.
