1. Mobile Computing Kelly Dunphy Michelle Lamont Sarah Zupnik Eric MacPherson

2. Agenda Defining Mobile Computing (Smartphones) How It works The History Of Mobile Computing Current Devices Limitations General Advantage What Businesses Are Using It (Case Study) What The Future Holds

3. Mobile Computing: Buzzwords: Mobile, ubiquitous, nomadic, untethered, pervasive and anytime, any where 3 billion + cell phones vs. 1.2 billion PCs Smartphone: a mobile phone offering advanced capabilities beyond a typical mobile phone, often with PC-like functionality. A phone with PDA capabilities or a PDA with added phone capabilities

4. The Hardware: Processors with clock speeds of 100-24 MHz ARM architecture: power saving features 98% of phones sold have at least one ARM processor Memory built in and removable memory card Computer chips for functionality

5. The Software: Kernel- responsible for managing the system’s resources Middleware- connects software components or applications; facilitates applications such as security, web browsing, messaging, etc… Application execution environment- application programming interfaces that allow developers to create their own programs User interface framework- graphics and layouts Application suite- basic applications that users access regularly

6. Operating Systems: Symbian- kernal and middleware Linux- free and open source software Windows Mobile- encompasses entire stack Java- OS’s based on Java programming language Garnet OS- combines a Linux-based foundation with applications written for the old Palm OS Unique operating systems- ex. Apple iPhone and RIM BlackBerry

7. Connectivity: Wi-Fi Wireless Broadband Bluetooth

8. History Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) Smartphones Combining Technology 1st Smartphone- “Simon” (1993)- $900 includes: x86-compatible CPU Fax modem Type II PC Card slot 11 built-in programs Touch-sensitive LCD Personal information manager (PIM) features such as address book and calendar Evolved into small mini computers

9. Latest Devices Blackberry Storm- Blackberry OS (Business Users) Camera (3.2 MP) Built-in GPS Media Player Video Recording BlackBerry® Maps Wireless Email Organizer Browser Phone Corporate Data Access SMS/MMS

10. Latest Devices T-Mobile MDA Vario V- Windows Mobile OS (Personal and Business Users) 512MB of flash storage 528MHz processors Autofocus cameras GPS Bluetooth Opera Mobile 9.5 web browser

11. Latest Devices Samsung’s 17110 Smartphone- S60 & Symbian OS (Personal and Business Users) 2.6’’ screen FMRadio GPS Navigation (Geo-Tagging, Pedestrian & Driving) Optical Mouse 3D Games Bluetooth v2.0 USB 2.0 WiFi 50MB Memory External Memory Slot (up to 16GB) 5Mpix Camera Video and Music Player

12. Latest Devices Palm Treo 800w- Palm OS (Business Users) Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional Edition Touchscreen Camera (enables new kinds of productivity applications) One-touch WiFi button (rapidly connected at home, office or in WiFi hotspots) Integrated GPS and Palm software enhancements (maps, point-to-point directions and point-of-interest (POI) searches)

13. Disadvantages Insufficient Bandwidth- slow wireless WAN systems Security Standards- public networks Transmission Interferences- weather, distance, etc. Potential Health Hazards- hospitals Extensive Wireless Data Plans Physical Characteristic Limitations- bigger, heavier Dependence- social consequences?

14. General Advantage Work away from office Stay on top of current events Access databases and files Real time business decisions Stay in touch with the office

15. Cape Breton Police (Case Study) Made up of 188 officers Patrol 2,460 square miles Behind on technology Using radio communication and dispatch No prior large technological investments Forward Looking

16. Case Study Con’t BlackBerry Advantage Leading the way in Canadian Police communication Offered high security Cost benefit More efficient, safe police activity Future Potential

17. The Future Improving Wireless Networks – 3G, 4G Allow users to access faster networks, increased bandwidth, and greater connectivity New Services Memory as a Service for mobile devices Increased Security Standards Important to ensure users are protected while using mobile devices

18. The Future Hardware Improvements Processor Speed / Memory Environment Sensing Technology Biometric Technology Applications Aimed at business users create personal productivity applications Adds functionality to mobile devices for business users
