The Future of Communication – Virtual Smartphone Case Study


Mobile Consumers are constantly looking for solutions that provide flexibility, connectivity and access to their personal information stored on their device, while on the move.

Mobile technology and its ecosystem have drastically evolved over the past few years. There has been continuous enhancement in voice communication; advancement in mobile networks (2G, 2.5G, 3G and now 4G); innovations in mobile applications across industry verticals such as media, entertainment, retail, automobile, financial services, education; revolution around text messaging, integration and interactions via social networking; improvements in mobile commerce and many more.

The next wave in the mobile technology is going to be a virtual smartphone.

What is a Virtual Smartphone?

This is an application which allows you to perform all the activities you currently do from your mobile device – managing contacts, making calls, chatting with friends, sending text messages, exchanging emails, and socializing via networking sites from any “internet-enabled device” – mobile phone, tablet, laptop, desktop etc., just as you do from your mobile device.

All your information will be synchronized between the server and all devices, so that you have the same experience and data whichever device you choose to communicate.

Why is this useful?

It gives you the flexibility to access and use your personal information stored on your smartphone from anywhere, from any internet-enabled device and at any time. The application is highly secure too – you will have your own account created with a unique username and password.

Also, in case you lose your smartphone, you will not lose all the data available on your mobile device. All that you need to do it sync-up with the server and download all your personal information into the new mobile device.

Case Study
