Could this really follow Generation Y to become the name of the newest generation? Some think so.
According to a number of reports, the young are foregoing other media for the smartphone. They tend to always have their smartphones with them. They use them more than many would like. And they are changing the nature of social interaction.
Many are ditching their televisions, computers, iPods, cameras, maps and address books in favor of the combined convenience of smartphones.
Some see this, in part, as a serious addiction problem. The trend, however, seems irreversible.
The young have always been obsessed with communicating. It's understandable why a device with so many ways of communicating would be a big hit.
