On April 3, 1973, Martin Cooper, a Motorola researcher and executive, made the first analog mobile phone call using a heavy prototype model. The year was 1973 when the first hand held mobile device was introduced to the world. History has a great way of showing you how the present day and time has been molded, created, and how exciting the future shall be with technology.
Fast forward to the present day, which is January 16th 2012 and you can see a huge change in mobile usage and data consumption. The heaviest contributor to the digital mobile revolution would be Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android mobile operating systems. I would like to add that we must not forget about the other mobile operating systems like Windows and Blackberry making ample contributions. Developing for these platforms has taken learning their OS, which is not a easy task if your wanting to cover multiple platforms. In fact, most companies hire multiple developers to accomplish reaching a wide mobile user base!! Most companies pay quite a lot of money to hire various developers to accomplish simple applications. Many are looking for solutions that will cut costs, and minimize multiple developers on payroll.
