What is the difference between a Feature Phone and a Smartphone?
Posted by TeamITI on February 5, 2009
The most common definition of a Smartphone is a phone that has its own operating system and can run third-party applications. Common examples of Smartphones are Blackberry, Palm’s Treo and Centro models the Apple iPhone, and numerous devices running either Windows Mobile or Symbian operating systems.
Any other phone on the market would generally be considered a Feature Phone. While Feature Phones are not as expandable as Smartphones, the line is blurring between these two categories. Almost every Feature Phone sold today ships with Java Micro Edition (J2ME™), which is much like an operating system in that it allows users to download third-party applications to their phones.
