Mobile Computing - The Growing Technology

Friday, March 24, 2017

Technology that evolved in the 90's is bringing two important changes that will reshape the existing network computing into what is becoming known as Mobile Computing.
Mobile computing is the concept of being able to connect to friend's family and the office at any-time and any place and having full access to information and resources. If you were to consider the Web as today's biggest, distributed information system it would be only natural to add mobility to the web. Over the last several years lot of research and developments has taken place to provide for a "mobile web". Mobile computing is one of the hottest development fields today. This has become apparent with the boom in the smartphone industry with developments like the I-Phone and the N95. Mobile computing is not totally new and has been around for quite some time now and has been accessed through the smaller PC's and PDA's For many years now.
It has not been until recently the full power of the internet has been available in a mobile format though. Today you have many options for connecting and accessing information through the internet or even through your own unique network configurations. You now can truly be connected where ever and when ever you need to have instant information.
Mobile computing is no longer a "scaled-down" version of the networking capabilities.
As wireless communication continues to boom media and the mobility of computers will create new problems in networking, operating systems, and information systems. Both hardware and software will be going through some rapid and amazing changes. Keeping up with the wants and needs of the Mobile computing population will keep this area of technology on its toes for years to come.
These technologies will dramatically changing our day-to-day lives, with the popularity of small devices such as (PDAs) personal digital assistants and the smartphone we now have the internet at our finger tips 24 hours a day.
Reducing the energy consumed in using these devices, will be and is currently being look at as the next big challenge. The need to extend the lifetime of the batteries that power them is one major concern and along with reducing their weight will be major design advancements in these systems. Mobile computing has increased from around 25% in 1998 to well over 65% in 2008 and the trend seems to be heading to even more growth over the next few years.
