Created by Verity in Technology

Smartphones may seem like something out of science fiction – a computer that fits in your pocket! – but they’re taking over the mobile phone market.

What a smartphone can do

http://investingtips360.com/?klaystrofobiya=%D9%81%D9%88%D8%B1%D9%83%D8%B3-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B3%D8%B9%D9%88%D8%AF%D9%8A%D8%A9&019=d3 What can a smartphone do for you? Well, almost anything a full computer can. Of course, you can use it to make phone calls and send text messages, but it can do so much more. For example, you can:

  • access your email
  • listen to music or watch videos, both of which you can transfer to the phone from your
  • home computer
  • browse the web
  • connect to the international GPS (global positioning system) network, pinpoint your
  • location anywhere on Earth and display it on a handy map, essentially using the phone as a fully portable sat-nav, just like in a car make (on some phones) free Skype calls, which might even make some of the above features redundant!

شرحه You can browse the web with a smartphone via two networks: a fast ‘wifi’ (wireless) one that you may have set up at home or can access in various public locations (many pubs, train stations and libraries offer free wifi, for instance); or the slightly slower 3G network that now covers most of the country.

Which and how much?

‘Apps’

http://wilsonrelocation.com/?q=www-fx-arabia-com www fx arabia com Perhaps the most exciting thing about the smartphone is the new – and fashionable – concept of ‘apps’. Short for ‘applications’, apps are essentially small computer programs that run on a smartphone in the same way that they might on a normal computer.

مزيد من المساعدة Apps can perform almost anything, being limited only by the talent of the phone’s programmers and its technical aspects. In fact, apps frequently perform tasks that the smartphone manufacturers never even imagined.

  • give you step-by-step, illustrated recipes
  • provide interactive railway timetables that are automatically updated with delays and cancellations
  • use the phone’s camera to read product barcodes and automatically compare prices with shops on the internet
  • let you watch clips from your favourite football club’s matches and keep in touch by constantly updating statistics.

مبادئ The biggest one is the ‘App Store’ devoted to apps for the Apple iPhone. Surprisingly, most apps won’t trouble your (virtual) wallet too much. Although some specialist ones can be very expensive (sat-nav maps, for instance, which can cost over £50), most cost between only £1 and £5, with many falling below that or even offered for free.

 

A substitute for a computer?

So, since smartphones are capable of such fabulous feats, is it worth replacing your entire home computer with one? Probably not.

Smartphones are fantastic devices to be used on the go, but are usually too small and/or slow for extended use. The small screen can get rather tiresome to squint at after a short time, and the various keyboards that the phones come with (comprising lots of tiny buttons or a display right on the touchscreen) can be fiddly and hard to use. You can improve greatly with practice, but it’s still not something you would want to use to write more than a short letter or an email.

Furthermore, many smartphones explicitly require you to connect to a computer in order to activate them in the first place.

However, although smartphones may look small and complicated, with a little practice they can be fantastically useful gadgets. Perhaps you’ll be the next member of the always-connected generation?
