Ever since new technology was introduced to the human race, a lot of opportunities in various industries have opened its door. One great example is the mobile phone technology. These innovative, user-friendly devices, particularly the smart phones and tablets, gave people like you the chance to explore the world in the palm of your hand. And one of the obvious positive contributions of mobile technology trends is the point of providing small and medium scale businesses great benefits because of the radical changes offered in the trading industry. In fact, according to mobile tech experts, "Collectively, smartphones and tablets save business owners around 2 billion hours each year." Isn't that amazing or what?


Another contributing factor of the mobile technology is communication at its best. It’s the most considered essential benefit, why the mobile phone is everyone’s favorite tool today. You've been in the business for so long and this is the only time that you can really say that your business has spread its wings because you were able to reach your potential consumers and interact with them. Your relationship with your clients grows stronger because of the strong connection you have established, of course with the help of the latest mobile technology trends. With mobile technology, there's not a day that people learn about your products and services.


Despite of the biggest noise in mobile technology made by top mobile producers and marketers throughout the years, it's not surprising that there are always a downside in mobile technology trends. Just like the old saying goes, "what is here today, may be gone tomorrow." You just don't know what's in store in the future of mobile technology. You cannot just predict what the next big thing in mobile technology trend is, because everyday there's a new discovery and it’s something you cannot control.


A good example is when Samsung released a Galaxy S6 Earpods that might have been the inspiration of iPhone 5’s EarPods introduced in September 2012. Although mobile technology is a stable industry to date, you can always expect that there will be challenges and setbacks in years to come. In fact, there’s already a lot in the news today about unresolved issues in the mobile industry and the ones that are considered confidential were not allowed to come out for the sake of saving a top brand of mobile product from public humiliation.


What are the Hardest Riddles in the Mobile Technology Scheme Today?


The Mobile Network


According to John Spindler; "One of the biggest challenges currently facing mobile operators is the increasing demand for capacity." It's not new to you that mobile phone users around the globe are extremely big in numbers and as time goes by, it grows and there's no way you can stop it. And the biggest challenge now is how to cope up with the growing traffic of network users.


No matter how many mobile developers optimize mobile designs, if the increment in data traffic is unstoppable, how can there be a solution? Not to mention the never-ending mobile technology service issues like slow connection, postponement of data download, and interrupted communication. All these things happen because networks can no longer keep up with the number of users subscribing to them.

Mobile industry giants are trying to put pressure on their mobile operators to come up with such advance solution to resolve the problem. Asking them to re-assess the structure of their mobile network system, but remaining in its practical level. So, this is another big dispute that mobile technology trends must undergo. This problem will escalate, especially knowing that some areas are relying to mobile networks like the urban places. These areas are considered the largest mobile users, so the demand for reliable mobile technology networks is high.


There’s no doubt you can expect that in the next five years, modern technology devices will increase ten folds. So, mobile operators are under pressure to upgrade their system before it’s too late. It’s very clear that networks may no longer sustain the need of their subscribers. In the long run, mobile users like you will no longer have the capacity to tolerate such network predicament.


The Mobile Application Software


One of the most exciting contributions that mobile technology trends ever offered to humanity is the mobile application software - the ability to provide mobile and tablet users the happiness of manipulating their mobile devices to satisfy their wants and needs and give them the pleasure to watch videos, take photos, play games and of course, use internet. But due to many software applications coming out today, producing mobile apps that are suitable for any device is considered one of the biggest challenges program developers face.


The software application development is becoming more severe due to the fact that multiple changes and versions of mobile operating systems come out almost every day. This is not new to the public since the mobile marketing news openly announce to the public mobile application misconduct. For instance, some features of iPhone 4s are not available in iPhone 4, or Windows Phone 8 is not working with the latest Windows phone devices. Android phones are slow with regard to upgrading mobile apps platform. And Android phone 2.2 versions will not enjoy the special feature of 4.4 versions.


The Possible Resolution to the Problem


For Mobile Technology Network


If majority of smartphone or tablet users become disconnected because of the limited service given by the network providers, this might take a toll on their IT department - and they need to find ways on how to resolve the issue, fast. It's not just pushing the level of wi-fi connection, it's more than that.


One of the potential resolutions is to install better and stronger network connection indoors to carry out all the signals needed in every mobile device. So there will be no clogging or interruption from the volume of subscribers using the same network all at the same time. The use of small cells like picocells is considered one option to deliver this kind of service. The next proverbial solution is the broadband or the multi-operator distributed antenna system (DAS)


For Mobile Technology Application Software


The solution to this crisis is not yet defined. The problem will continue as long as a mobile app developer will not discover the right formula to make all developed mobile apps become compatible to every mobile devices present today. However, the only potential solution so far is to come up with one application mobile platform that can become useful to all existing modern mobile devices, but it’s still on the drawing board. The only thing that matters now is to let mobile app developers realize the urgency of the situation. And hoping that one day, they will come up with the right formula to produce a uniform mobile apps platform that is suitable to every Smartphone and tablet available today.


The Bright Future of Mobile Technology Trends

If these predicaments in mobile technology trends are finally resolved, you are rest assured that consumers and businesses from different industries will continue tapping the next big thing in the mobile device industry. Moreover, mobile marketing agencies will not become stressful of introducing the next big thing in mobile marketing technology schemes because consumers like you will always patronize what's new in the mobile digital market today.
