  • Welcome to my presentation.
    Following up Best’s article about wireless technologies and his reference to “new and low-cost technologies,” I wanted to further explore devices that will be in the hands of network users, what I see as the HandHeld Bridge.
  • What these devices will accomplish is to help bridge the digital divide. Once wireless access coverage is implemented into event he remotest of lands, these devices will afford the bridge to universal access.

  • As outlined in M. Best’s article the world is connecting wirelessly at a rapid pace. The remote areas of the world are also getting connected in various ways and in larger metro areas across the globe entire cities are being blanketed by coverage to the ‘net.

  • A smartphone is a mobile phone offering advanced capabilities beyond a typical mobile phone, often with PC-like functionality. There is no industry standard definition of a smartphone.[1][2] For some, a smartphone is a phone that runs complete operating system software providing a standardized interface and platform for application developers.[3][4] For others, a smartphone is simply a phone with advanced features like e-mail and Internet capabilities, and/or a built-in full keyboard or external USB keyboard and VGA connector. In other words, it is a miniature computer that has phone capability.[5][6]

  • Beyond email, smartphones lack full word processing, limiting their use in many sectors.
  • Enter the MID, Mobile Internet Device. mostly a larger screen and a reasonably sized keyboard. Limited in RAM and storage space these products may best take advantage of cloud services.

  • One that stands out by its intended design is the OLPC. Intending to be the low cost bridge over the digital divide, its designers looked to provide a low cost, self powered device that could be used in the most rural setting. In situations where the education resource for a child is $20 per year (http://laptop.org/en/vision/mission/index.shtml), this $199 device brings the power of computing and the internet to the developing world.


  • A true handheld device that bills itself as delivering “power and simplicity in a way no other computer in the world does.”
    (http://www.amidasimputer.com/why/)
    Amida (pictured is the “Color Economy Simputer 2200”) positions this device as a mobile personal computer. The first computer manufactured in India. 64MB of RAM, 206 MHz processor.
    It combines web browser, email, music, photos, games language libraries, word processing, finance in one small package.
    I does connect to the web via Optional external dial-up modem over serial port, connect through USB to select Wireless/Wired connectivity options* , Bi-directional Infrared. (http://www.amidasimputer.com/specs/)
  • http://www.nova1to1.com/index.php
    Schools across the world are prime choices for small -to match the small hands of the users(Mini-Note's keyboard is 92 percent of the size of a standard keyboard)-devices with basic functions and tools.
    These type devices are what Dian Schaffhauser refers to as “the next engine for powering 1-to-1 programs within schools.” Her research quotes an IDC (International Data Corporation) study (B. O’Donnell) that predicts “that these little computers could capture about a third of the entire PC education market by 2012”

  • In a market currently filled with devices for specific needs, Some manufacturers are further refining the industry, developing a single, all purpose device. In his article Mr. Luo finds that the usefulness of devices like iphone and blackberrys can go just so far, failing when dedicated word processing is needed.
