4 Common Gadgets Being Replaced by Smartphones

Smartphones are completely ingenious; there’s no question about it. As they continue to gain popularity, though, some other gadgets aren’t faring so well. When you have a handheld device that can do some many things, it’s only natural that other devices will fade to black.

Take these four common gadgets for example:

Digital Cameras

Nearly all smartphone owners use their phone to take photos. The 8-megapixel camera in the iPhone 4S is just as good as, and in some cases better, than digital cameras.

GPS Devices

Mounting your smartphone in your car while you drive is the same as using a portable GPS system—and you don’t have to pay $200 extra for it.

iPods/mp3 players

Very few people want to actually carry around an iPod and a phone. When you can load your entire music library on to your phone, why bother with both?

Standard wristwatches

No, we don’t think watches will go away completely. However, between using a smartphone to check the time and the development of Android-based watches and wristbands for iPod Nano, the watch as we know it may be history.

As these devices make their way out, we’re especially interested to see what new innovations come about. The evolution of technology never ceases to amaze us.

Have you phased out any of these gadgets in your life? Are there others your smartphone has replaced?
