This paper researches the rise of application-based mobile devices and their effect on product design education. Information was obtained from design students and design professionals regarding applications-based mobile device they use and in what ways. A niche market was shown to have been created by smart devices as a large section of the population would like cheaper, simpler devices. The conclusion was that a perfect all-in-one product could not be accommodated due to how the designers currently use their devices. The most common use of applications were sharing and presenting work as opposed to creating it directly on the smart devices. Many designers stated they preferred multiple devices such as tablets, smartphones and laptops that are all compatible compared to the idea of one that could do it all due to the fact that the range of tasks to complete is too extensive.
