Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES - TEXT BY NIDHI SIN­GAL

The hard­ware ac­cel­er­a­tion in smart­phones has made dents across in­dus­tries, prompt­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers of cam­eras, ra­dios, mu­sic play­ers, nav­i­ga­tors and even PCs to in­no­vate in or­der to stay rel­e­vant. De­spite this, the multi-task­ing smart­phone can do even more.

There are mil­lions of ap­pli­ca­tions avail­able that can be in­stalled in­di­vid­u­ally or be paired with a few in­ter­est­ing hard­ware ac­ces­sories to do a lot more than just play mu­sic or cap­ture im­ages.

While it is com­mon to use the smart­phone as a mouse or a we­b­cam for a per­sonal com­puter, in­no­va­tive apps let you use it for outof-the box stuff like start­ing a car or mak­ing and ac­cept­ing pay­ments.
