Mobile computing

  1. 1. MOBILE DEVICES<br />Where would we be without them<br />
  2. 2. Mobile Computing<br />The Different devices available to us today allow us to always be connected & never disconnected from society.<br />The devices of today have come a long way from the days of cell phones with cords and in bags.<br />How many of us are guilty of constantly checking their messages on their mobile devices?<br />
  3. 3. MOST Popular<br />Smartphones<br />Ipads<br />Ipods<br />Ebooks<br />Laptops<br />Netbooks<br />Wi-Fi<br />These are a list of some of our most popular known mobile devices<br />
  4. 4. Define Mobile Computing<br />According to PCMAG.com the definition of Mobile computing is: Using a computing device while in transit. Mobile computing implies wireless transmission, but wireless transmission does not necessarily imply mobile computing. Fixed wireless applications use satellites, radio systems and lasers to transmit between permanent objects such as buildings and towers. <br />http://www.pcmag.com/encyclopedia_term/0,2542,t=mobile+computing&i=47137,00.asp<br />
  5. 5. Smartphones<br />A cellular telephone with built-in applications and Internet access. Smartphones provide digital voice service as well as text messaging, e-mail, Web browsing, still and video cameras, MP3 player, video viewing and often video calling. In addition to their built-in functions, smartphones can run myriad applications, turning the once single-minded cellphone into a mobile computer.<br />Most well known example is the iphone, although there are many phones now in the smart category<br />
  6. 6. IPODS<br />The iPod family consists of a series of portable digital audio players designed and marketed by Apple Computer. Most models store media on a built-in hard drive, while a lower-end model called the iPod shuffle relies on flash memory. They can also serve as an external drive while connected to a computer or newer versions can be used as a texting device. <br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qH5PpFpfG30&feature=related<br />
  7. 7. EBOOKS<br />An eBook is an electronic version of a traditional print book that can be downloaded over the Internet and read by using a personal computer or by using an eBook reader.<br />
  8. 8. Laptop vs. netbook<br />This was a personal decision I had to recently make. Do I want a larger laptop or a smaller netbook.<br />After much research I found the number one drawback, for me, on the netbook was that they have no CD-Drive. <br />Laptops are portable desktop computers. Everything that is available on your big bulky desktop is there on your laptop.<br />Netbooks are smaller and easier to carry around. <br />
  9. 9. Laptop vsnetbook<br />
  10. 10. Wi-fi<br />According to http://www.wi-fihotspotlist.com/faq.htmlWi-Fi is a way to get Internet access.Please visit their website for a more detailed description. <br />For some people who live in rural areas, such as myself, wi-fi brought high-speed internet to us. With new USB plug in devices or mi-fi devices we are able to take our internet with us. <br />
