Cellular phones continue to follow Moore’s law and technologically grow in power each year. Inventive individuals continue to fund new ways to harness this power into other industries such as movie making, music broadcasting, and now real estate.
According to a Cincinnati real estate blog, cellular phones are becoming a useful real estate tool. The smart phone and txt enabled phones can send short codes found on real estate signs to gain basic information on the price, square footage, and other basics. Going forward smart phones will be able to download virtual tours and potentially schematics on homes yet to be built.
I would look to fashion as the next major venue to pick up the smart phone as an outlet. The ability to capture style in an image and then have garments found or custom made could drive fashion sales. Look to houses such as Zara and H&M to be quick adopters of this model since their factory is already designed for fast turn around.
