Excerpt from Research Paper:

This section of the paper is providing the disadvantages of smart phones and tablets technology for the employees working in private and government organizations.

a. Cost

Undoubtedly, the biggest disadvantage of smart phones and tablets technology is the cost as compared to the standard mobile phones. Since, it has been examined that the cost of smart phones is more upfront as compared to the less than about a third of such cost for a standard phone. The smart phones require expensive data plans that are not included in most standard phones making bills expensive with every passing month (McLoughlin & Aaker, 2010; Cerra, Easterwood, & Power, 2012; Rainer & Cegielski, 2010; Ilyas & Ahson, 2006).

b. Security

Smart phones are found to provide access to the internet through the availability of Wi-Fi or data packages. The data security is a major concern for employees working in private or government organizations. The applets being downloaded by the employees along with the passwords being input into these applets and websites are sometimes not secure in the context of account privacy (Ilyas & Ahson, 2006; Stair & Reynolds, 2011; Reynolds, 2009). It means that internet access on an insecure network can threat employees of private organizations or government organizations in the context of identity theft and hacked accounts. It can be said that the employees of the private organizations and government organizations should log out of applets and websites after completing their sessions (Ilyas & Ahson, 2006; Cerra, Easterwood, & Power, 2012; Stair & Reynolds, 2011; Laudon & Traver, 2010; Reynolds, 2009).

c. Distraction

Smart phones and tablets technologies are distracters for employees working in private organizations and public organizations causing the decline in worker productivity along with the maintenance of completion of consumers' tasks. It is obvious that a device fitting into pockets of employees in private organizations or government organizations and equipped with almost everything (Basole, 2008; McLoughlin & Aaker, 2010; Rainer & Cegielski, 2010). It is natural for every employee to check emails consistently, scores of favorite sports, text messages, Facebook, and browsing the web. It declines the time for employees to spend time on projects of their business organizations. In addition to this, the employees being users of smart phones and tablets technology often play games on these technological devices during their business meetings, and seminars instead of focusing on the presentations (Basole, 2008; Cerra, Easterwood, & Power, 2012; Laudon & Traver, 2010; McLoughlin & Aaker, 2010; Rainer & Cegielski, 2010; Stair & Reynolds, 2011).

d. Typing

The smart phones have built on keyboards for touch screen keypad interfaces for the activities such as typing emails, notes and website addresses. It can be said that the keyboard is significantly smaller on the interface of smart phones as compared to its computer and characters are packed closely and these things limit the fast pace of typing. It is often found that people can type with a single hand because one hand needs to support the phone leading to stress and injuries in typing hands of employees working in private organizations and government organizations (Cerra, Easterwood, & Power, 2012; Ilyas & Ahson, 2006; Laudon & Traver, 2010; Basole, 2008; McLoughlin & Aaker, 2010; Stair & Reynolds, 2011; Reynolds, 2009).

Improved Capability and Mobility

Since the inception of App Store of Apple in 2008, the concept of mobility and capability has evolved from a novelty into important part of doing business. It can be said that the organizations in a private sector or public sector in broad markets are observing the value of mobilizing enterprise information while making it available to consumers, employees, and partners (Basole, 2008; Ilyas & Ahson, 2006). These types of organizations have made tablets and smart phones important devices for the sales, marketing, and human resource strategies driving revenue growth with the increase in consumer loyalty and strong brand awareness. The organizations either private or government, can create focused applications to improve the employees' efficiency, communication, and productivity. Such type of initiatives has been considered by different organizations of public and private sector with varying levels of success (Basole, 2008; Ilyas & Ahson, 2006; Cerra, Easterwood, & Power, 2012; McLoughlin & Aaker, 2010).

The organizations in public and private sectors have implemented mobility strategies are considered as impressive return on the investments of organizations. It can be said that the organizations are required to take advantage from mobility to improve their internal operations while boosting productivity of their employees. Moreover, organizations should create policies outlining businesses and professional's usages within the organizations using technologies of smart phones and tablets (Cerra, Easterwood, & Power, 2012; Laudon & Traver, 2010; Stair & Reynolds, 2011; Rainer & Cegielski, 2010).


From the above analysis and researches, it has been concluded that technology has been evolved since past few years and the number of technological changes has been occurring. as, in the history, the technology development was started from the introduction of mainframe computers, desktop pc, cell phones, and laptop. Beside it, from the studies, it has been found that the launch of smart phones and tablets brought significant changes into different areas of life from the perspective of technology and makes the life easier and fastest (Cerra, Easterwood, & Power, 2012; Rainer & Cegielski, 2010). On the other hand, whereas it has been found competitive benefits and advantages of these technological devices, there are several disadvantages of these technological devices can be observed. Likewise, these technological devices also have both advantages and disadvantages in the context of workplaces whether it be a private organization or a government organization. These advantages or disadvantages have provided different aspects to private and government organizations to implement certain strategies to increase the success and revenue growth. (Cerra, Easterwood, & Power, 2012; Laudon & Traver, 2010; Rainer & Cegielski, 2010).
