Finding the sync between mobile phone manufacturers and mobile phone service providers

Are they in sync?

The world has seen the quickest technological advancement within the last 10 years. We have moved from landline phones to smart phones whose functionalities do not differ much from modern computers. I’d say some of the mobile phones are even exceeding computers in some areas, I can quickly say that I am yet to see a computer/laptop that routes wireless internet, but phones can nowadays easily service multiple users with wi-fi internet.

User are very quick in following trends, consumers research on new products everyday and are always on standby for new product releases.

“Apple shipped 27.4 million iPhone 5 smartphones during the quarter (the fourth quarter of 2012) and 17.4 million iPhone 4S models…” (source) This shows how quick consumers are in equipping themselves with new products.

However, another side of things seems to be lagging behind, mobile phone operators. Manufactures are producing products that seem to be beyond some mobile phone operating companies’ abilities. I recently encountered a situation where Blackberry 10 smart phones were launched while a certain mobile phone operator did not have the 4g internet configuration in place to run the full features of the new blackberry release.

It is about time there is sync between product manufactures and service providers, what is the use of having a high-tech smart phone if your local service provider cannot support the full features.
