what is in your hand? This has been the question my mentor (Dr Strive Masiyiwa) always ask his mentees. When you ask a farmer what is in his hand decades ago, what do you think will be his response? A farmer especially in Africa always have a cutlass in his hand. That cutlass is his farming tool.
In this modern time, when you ask the youth the same question, what will be the answer? Just imagine checking the hands of 20 people around you currently. What do you see in their hands? It is a technology called smartphone. That technology is a tool that anyone can use to create amazing things.

A pen is a lever because it helps a student to solve a problem of writing. A cutlass in the hand of a farmer is a lever because it helps him to cut down trees and bushes. A smartphone is a lever because it provides tools that helps us to connect the world.
According to SearchMobileComputing a smartphone is a cellular telephone with an integrated computer and other features not originally associated with telephones such as an operating system, web browsing and the ability to run software applications.
