Impact Of The
iPhone On Business: The
iphone is an awesome expansion in the
ability for individuals to communicate.
While some may dismiss the advent of the
iphone as a common electronics leisure item
designed to appeal to those with a need for
high tech ‘toys’, the reality of the matter
is that the expansion of any form of
communicative device has great potential
beyond mere leisure and can contribute
greatly to the infrastructure of the
economic stability of a nation.
Now, this may seem on the
surface to be a bold statement, but in
reality it is a somewhat reserved statement

For example, relying on receiving snail mail
letters for important requested information
is far, far less than desirable than email
because the wait time on reception of a
letter can be three days while a email is
delivered in split seconds.
There is not comparison between the two.
With snail mail, up to three days of
productivity can be lost. With the

speed up productivity is significantly
As such, the impact of the iphone on
business can never be underestimated and in
a short amount of time the massive positive
effects of it on businesses will clearly
