Itdoes so by connecting to a cellular network provided by a mobile phone operator, allowing access tothe public telephone network. By contrast, a cordless telephone is used only within the short range ofa single, private base station.In addition to telephony, modern mobile phones also support a wide variety of other services such astext messaging, MMS, email, Internet access, short-range wireless communications (infrared,Bluetooth), business applications, gaming and photography. Mobile phones that offer these and moregeneral computing capabilities are referred to as smartphones.Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_phoneComputersA computer is a programmable machine designed to automatically carry out a sequence of arithmeticor logical operations. The particular sequence of operations can be changed readily, allowing thecomputer to solve more than one kind of problem. An important class of computer operations onsome computing platforms is the accepting of input from human operators and the output of resultsformatted for human consumption. The interface between the computer and the human operator isknown as the user interface.
