Default SMARTPHONE SURVEY (for my school, please take it!)

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone, I'm a student at Northeastern University and I'm taking a New Product Development class. The following is a quick survey that I my group has designed and it will take no longer than 5 minutes. I would really appreciate it.

Please copy the following block into a new email, place 'x' marks in the appropriate boxes (the things that look like this --> [ ] ) and email them to 'mattsurvey@mac.com' THANK YOU!!!

Section 1

A smartphone is any electronic handheld device that integrates the functionality of a mobile phone, personal digital assistant or other
information appliance. This is often achieved by adding telephone functions to an existing PDA or putting "smart" capabilities, such as
PDA functions, into a mobile phone.

The key feature of a smartphone is that one can install additional
applications to the device. The applications can be developed by the
manufacturer of the handheld device, by the operator or by any other
third-party software developer.

Thank you!

Sorry but I don't readily give out my email so you can get information here.

Nextel's 7520 with the Telenav software does what you are studying.

I also use Street Atlas with my laptop on the road.

This survey smacks of a marketing pundit. Hmm, maybe a researcher in disguise.
