A modern day smart phone will have a software platform as part of its primary design structure. The 2 most popular mobile operating systems (forming the software platform) are Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android platforms.

These mobile operating systems enable the interface between the software and hardware (on board a smart phone) to work cohesively. The mobile operating system also allows the end user to run software applications on the smart phone (known as “apps”) and these are aimed at promoting end user productivity.

In summary, a modern day smart phone should allow the end user to perform the following tasks at a bare minimum:

  1. Ability to send/receive emails.
  2. Ability to browse through the internet.
  3. Ability to manage calendar appointments.
  4. Ability to take both still images and video content through the onboard camera.
  5. Ability to play multimedia content through the onboard media player.
  6. Ability to access a whole range of mobile applications, each with its own user purpose.
  7. Ability to double up as a GPS guidance device for navigational purposes.
