Think of a daily task, any daily task, and it's likely there's a specialized, pocket-sized device designed to help you accomplish it. You can get a separate, tiny and powerful machine to make phone calls, keep your calendar and address book, entertain you, play your music, give directions, take pictures, check your e-mail, and do countless other things. But how many pockets do you have? Handheld devices become as clunky as a room-sized supercomputer when you have to carry four of them around with you every day.
Since cell phones and PDAs are the most common handheld devices today, a smartphone is usually either a phone with added PDA capabilities or a PDA with added phone capabilities. Here's a list of some of the things smartphones can do:
• Send and receive mobile phone calls – some smartphones are also WiFi capable
• Personal Information Management (PIM) including notes, calendar and to-do list
• Communication with laptop or Desktop computers
• Data synchronization with applications like Microsoft Outlook and Apple's iCal calendar programs
• Instant Messaging
• Applications such as word processing programs or video games
• Play audio and video files in some standard formats
¬ Future applications promise to be even more impressive. For example, the Nokia 6131 is a phone utilizing near field communication (NFC) to allow the phone to act as a Wireless credit card. The phone uses a two-way communication system to transfer payment information to pads at certain retail stores. Currently, it’s still in the trial phase of development.
