Wireless device manufacturers could be among those interested in the recent comments of one industry expert regarding the impact of smartphones.
According to Heather McLean, editor of industry news publication Smart Gorillas, has claimed that such devices are having a huge effect on the way businesses operate.
"Smartphones are having a massive impact on business life today. Over the past 18 months, these computers in your pocket have spread from the world of the consumer, into the business world," she explained.
The expert claimed that while the apps market is well known for games, there are a number of useful options that can make doing businesses more practical for those on the go.
"Especially for smaller business operating with a tighter staff, and larger companies with workers out of the office a lot of the time, the smart phone is a revolution," she added.
The comments come after technology giant Apple released its iWork software, which will allow users to create, edit and send Word, spreadsheet and PowerPoint documents from their iPhone or iPad.
