Thread: SMS keeps on going

  1. #1

    Default SMS keeps on going

    The importance of SMS

    While a cat has nine lives, it seems that SMS has an infinite number of lives

    So while the rise in mobile instant messaging (MIM) has been heralded as its end, a closer look shows that this rather increases SMSís value in the corporate space.

    Still cant believe a blackberry is considered a smartphone. Then my 3 year old nokia should also be considered a smartphone.

    There is nothing smart about it!

    I foresee it's place in everyday use for a while yet to come. Besides not everyone owns a 'smartphone'.

    They are becoming much more affordable though. Take the little Vodafone V858 for instance. Can get it for about R1000.00 i think it is. Runs Android 2.3 nogal. :-)

    I'm not a blackberry fan but the newer ones are smart phones,especially when it comes to email handling they just beat the socks of everything else.

    I had a 9300 and 9800 torch and they would qualify as smart phones,whats makes you say they not smart?the graphics poor ui or the slow processors?Or are you basing your statement on the not so grand multimedia capabilities?

    I currently own an android x10i and had an iphone 3gs in the past so i know that blackberries are a bit behind the times but they are certainly smart phones.

    MXit has only been at this since forever and BBM and Whatsapp get all the credit. Nice.

    That said SMS is gonna remain around for a long time yet since it can reach any device at any time even when lack of data abilities renders MIM useless.
