Not that long ago, being available for a call meant tethering yourself to the landline on your kitchen wall or office desk. Fast forward a few years, and the advent of email opened up a whole new communicative medium for businesses. Still, sending and receiving email meant being anchored to a desktop or a laptop with a wired Internet connection. The concept of mobile communication had just begun to develop, and few could fathom its possibilities.

Mobile quickly revolutionized the way we work, the way we interact with one another, and the way we live. The United States went from the introduction of the world’s first true sProblemmartphone the 2007 iPhone to 70-percent market penetration in six years.
