welcome to lessen 14.4 mobile devices were going to compare various mobile devices through this lesson. So let's go and get started, Okay? So in this lesson, where we're going to do is look at different mobile devices, so you could become familiar with the certain features and characteristics off of these particular devices. So let's go ahead and start
tablets. Tablets have pretty much taking the world by storm. Tablets are mobile. They're convenient but yet powerful. As a laptop, there's a lot of different things that you can do on a tablet. Tablets were designed to be single screen touch computers.
Um, the operating system are normally I'll s or Android or others.
Their general sizes are seven inches in larger again designed for touch input, their touch screens. They also have virtual keyboards. You can draw on them, and they also have. You can use a Bluetooth or wireless mouse plug into a USB port, applications for tablets,
business or productivity games and utility
uses as well. And there's also specialized applications for tablets where they're being a retail environment. Utilities engineering their specialized uses for tablets as well.
They're also good for media pictures videos and movies so very convenient, very portable and very powerful as well.
Smart phones Smartphones is the number one most popular mobile device out there. It's a mobile communication device, but it has a lot of capabilities. You can make voice phone calls, receive email, make text messages, instant messaging videos, pictures.
There is a lot again features and things that you can do with our smartphones.
The general size for smartphones are 3.5 to 7 inches. Again, you can view media pictures, movies, mobile applications, maps, travel, finding destinations, applications that your jealousy on smartphones again. It's a wide
a range of applications, productivity gains and also specialized applications
for smart phones as well.
Then we have wearable technology. Wearable technology is a new and emerging technology that's very, very convenient. Smart watches. These features are added to your phone for personal, and your ultra portable smartwatches can be
use without the phone. Sometimes they could be tied to the phone or tethered to the phone through Bluetooth wireless.
But sometimes, depending on your provider in your carrier, you can use just a smart watch alone to make and receive phone calls as well as other features as well. Then we have fitness monitors. Fitness monitors
connect just likethe e smartwatches to Bluetooth wireless on your personal pan a network. They track your heart rate, sleep patterns, movement and much more
virtual reality or V R headsets. These headsets provided computer generated virtual environment. The entire environment that you're viewing is all within that headset is being computer generated. So you're in a virtual environment totally
allows you to interact with that virtual environment. Many different uses here. Gown gaming,
our design enhanced video in image viewing as well for your V R headsets.
And in addition to V R headsets, we have augmented reality headsets, these type of headsets or goggles on the overlay. The real world with argumentative virtual information
software provides the additional detail. So again, when you're using one of these headsets or these goggles, you're looking at the real world. But if virtual information over it so you can interact with the world world but yet still see the virtual elements, this is gonna be used for medical in medical situations where you have a patient
that virtual X ray over that live patient gaming. You can interact with the real world with the argument it reality around through these goggles and as well as travel with the argument of reality goggles, you can overlay riel destinations and landmarks with virtual elements for your travel on your maps.
E readers are very popular there. Specialized devices for reading books. Some have also have music and other applications as well. This type of technology is called electronic paper, generally there, the black and white screen, and it performs whale and direct sunlight, unlike a laptop or of the mobile devices.
And, of course, for reading books, it's a long battery life.
There's also wireless and network access sailor and WiFi, so these pages could be updated in real time or oh, ta.
The technology behind the E readers is such, whereas as your viewing the page it's not pulling any resource is. It's not updating a refreshing at that moment, and it doesn't update or refreshing to u turn the page. So, therefore, that long battery life with that type of technology, coupled together,
gives you an extremely long time to use these devices.
GPS is another popular device we have in car and non in car or handheld units, GPS or global positioning satellites use satellites to navigate we're at in relation to the direction that you are going in your surroundings
requires a clear line of sight. Could he needs to view the satellites. You can be
obstructed with different structures, and such GPS signals need to be cleared in order to be received an update in real time for this GPS unit. Um, updates are required for GPS units, so you could get either over the air updates or ot ace or in this commune, a form of a
direct connection to a computer or a memory card is such
okay, So that was our step through different characteristics and features of different mobile devices. We talked about tablets, smartphones, wearable technology, smartwatches, fitness monitors, V R and R headsets, e readers and GPS. So that's it for this lesson.
We will see you end the next lesson
