All of this is done through cellular phones on the go and many teenagers have subscribed to this method of communication as their primary one.

These abbreviations can be considered a language that evolves out of texting, and that language can be referred to as textspeak.
In the past, a cellular phone only served the purpose of making and receiving calls. With the introduction of text messaging, the trend shifted from the conventional postal service to the short-messaging service (SMS), driving further innovation on content and applications development (e.g. MMS, caller ringtones, etc.). With the help of engineers, people can communicate each other through video call without the distance barrier. We can transfer our information or huge data files with the faster and higher capacity 3G & 4G network in the shortest time.
The new OS X allows users to send SMS and make calls to any mobiles using your mobile phone number. Another good features is in apple is that if you have typed an email on mac OS X not sent yet, you can pick this up in iPhone and continue from there.

Cell Phone It is very hard to imagine life without cell phones. “The mobile device has become our communications hub, our diary, our entertainment portal, our primary source of media consumption, our wallet and our gateway to real-time information tailored to our needs. The revolution is now!” (Nihal Mehta, Eniac Ventures). In the past, people invented the telephone to make distances became closer between each other. Everyone was in need for this invention, so the scientist’s development the telephone to the cell phone.
Technology would progress to be how we would get a hold with each other. We will be able to just simply just pick up our fancy minicomputer that would be located just in all of our pockets; they would be called smart phones. Even the way we travel would be due to technological advancements such as cars, motorcycles, bus, trains and airplanes. Technology would make even the simplest task easier, such as mailing a letter would turn into sending the letter thought the internet. This would be called emailing; this development would allow us to commutation with others with other calling them.
The second generation endorsed its features wherein one is bestowing its customers to link calls between different parts of the world yet as mentioned above it needs changing the SIM in order to take and make calls in three different continents. In behalf of that, progress may be needed for the said generation that will make it available to have a simple and single network that will be able to access the countries without the need for alternating SIM. For that reason, it paved way to another mobile communication development which is a precursor to 4G. The third generation system is the system of mobile phone communication that was implemented by the countries in Asia such as the Japan and Korea during 2001. This generation includes more functionality in contrast to its predecessor for the past few decades.

So in the beginning, the mobile phone does not shake the mainstream telephone market. However, as the mobile phone technology continues to improve, more and more mainstream market turns to use the mobile phone. It is important to point out that the de nition of disruptive innovation does not include the need for one product to replace another. So after so many years, the xed-line telephone still has its certain demand in the speci c market.
