MANILA, Philippines – For its August 27, 2012 issue, international weekly magazine TIME pays homage to smartphones and mobile devices in its first mobile technology issue that shows “10 ways” in which smartphones and other mobile devices such as the iPad are “changing the world.”
In a video welcoming readers to the issue (which can be accessed by scanning the images on the “Editor’s Desk” section with the TIME mobile app for iPhone and Android) editor Richard Stengel points out, “Our cover this week, in fact, is made up of images sent by you, via Instagram — more than 30,000 images from all over the world, all 7 continents.”
