Mobiles have grown out of the age of leather holsters. A smart phone is the demand of the generation. A phone should be so much more than a feature phone providing advanced computing ability and connectivity. Smartphone serves multiple purposes. It serves the purpose of portable media players, low end inbuilt digital camera, video recorder, also GPS which provides you navigational facility. They also make interface fun and attractive with high resolution touch screen and fast web browsers that displays standard webpage and not mobile optimized ones. High speed data access with the help of WI-FI. It has flash compatibility and high speed data providing services with WI-FI and mobile broadband.
Like the moon even Smartphone have a dark facet. In spite they are loaded with features they are a big hassle to handle. Dropping them no longer just produce dents on its body it renders it unusable. When Smart phones will be used in future by new categories of user to support new business processes their prime need would be ruggedness. You have to understand that if the phone fails its productivity suffers then the price of the phone rises up.
Given that phone is a utility device and not an accessory the criteria of ruggedness becomes even more important. Now the question that may arise in your mind would be that what makes a phone rugged and reliable. Ruggedized handhelds that comes under enterprise operations must last at least three to five years. Ruggedness implies that the smart phone must fight the leading causes of device failure like lcd damage, antennae problems and other missing peripherals.
