When Cell Phone and Laptop Become One Single “Real Smart” Device

When we questioned whether a cell phone or a laptop seems more important to us several days ago, probably few of us considered the option of combing these two devices into one “real smart” tool. Motorola introduced the Atrix 4G that allows us to bring a smart phone, a lap top, and an entertainment center (TV) together. For a little less than $700, consumers can bring a Motorola Atrix 4G home, including a smart phone, a laptop, an entertainment dock, a keyboard, a mouse, and a remote control. I agree with this MSNBC News review that Atrix 4G still has several flaws and needs improvement. However, I see the future of this new tool.

The more powerful a cell phone becomes, the more people will rely on this gadget. Accordingly, the more attention a business should pay to smart phones. Because of cell phones, what consumer behaviors have changed over the years? What emerging consumer behaviors do you see? What strategies does a business need to adopt in responding to the cell phone trend?

  1. To me, this new gadget is just Motorola's attempt to create their own iPhone. Other attempts include the droid and the android, which are clearly still not nearly as popular as the iPhone, and frankly they never will be. Regardless of how many things this new contraption can do,I guarantee the iPhone can do all of those things. Company's should just give up trying to copy the iPhone, and come up with their own ideas.

The 7 Ps marketing mix of home-sharing services: Insights from over one million Airbnb reviews

The 7 Ps marketing mix framework is a widely used managerial tool that helps businesses identify the principal components of a service product.
