We have seen through the years that the higher the technology, smaller is the device. The boom of computing technology started with the onset of the personal computer (PC) and now we are in the age of smaller and faster computing devices - smartphones. Smartphones are being designed to perform all possible tasks that a personal computer can and has become "fully functional" in all respects.
By the day, people are becoming enthralled by smartphone technology through which they are able to communicate and do most of the work that they would, on a laptop. When the characteristics of both these devices are taken into consideration, it can be seen that there are not many differences between the two.
Considering the perspective on professionals, most working people would have various projects to work on, which require the use of word documents, excel spreadsheets, different multimedia software and databases. However, though small in size, smartphones now have the ability to work with these software's and databases along with a number of other applications. They may not be able to handle large projects but smartphones have become quite indispensable to corporate workers and other professionals in various fields.
For students of all ages, school and college work would consist of reports and projects to work on. Laptops would be a great choice for them to do their work with. But smartphones are not far behind as they are now capable of assisting students in working on reports, projects and at the same time can keep contacts and reminders for important dates. Smartphone technology is increasingly attracting youngsters with their endless applications on entertainment, art and music.
Along with audio, video is another huge aspect for devices with portable computing. It is of course widely known that laptops are the best for viewing videos of any type, be it streaming videos online or watching a recording or from a DVD. Smartphones are not far behind, though they do not have access to watch DVDs, they sure have a great display. Some companies are designing smartphones with large memory banks to hold many movies as well.
Smartphones are perfect for general use in making notes, making grocery lists, things to do lists, keeping in touch with friends, having a reminder for meetings, conferences or birthdays and browsing the web. Compact in size with high processing abilities, smartphones are now on par with laptops and are clearly giving the device a tough competition in the market.
