Smartphones are revolutionizing the way people communicate today. Almost every other person owns a smart phone these days. Most people have found the smart phone to be much more convenient and efficient in many ways. A smartphone is basically a small portable electronic device that combines personal computer and mobile phone functions into a single device. It is considered to be the next “personal assistant” because it is very efficient at doing tasks that would normally require a full-size desktop computer.
Smartphones run on a customized operating system called Symbian OS. Most smart phones use Windows based operating system to operate smoothly. If you are planning to purchase a smartphone, then the first thing you should do is to download Windows mobile app to your smartphone. Microsoft has developed and provides excellent apps for most of the popular smartphones in the market such as Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, Apple, etc.
Smartphones have a wide screen that can be expanded using a touch sensitive screen or tap-able 3.5 inch capacitive screens. This feature makes smart phones easy to browse the web, watch videos, listening to music, taking pictures and playing games. Many high end smartphones have built-in camera with various other useful features. Nokia E71, HTC Desire HD and LG Optimus are some of the top performing smartphones in the market that have powerful cameras with good memory, excellent resolution, and fast internet access. Android app versions of popular games such as Angry Birds, tetris, Draw Something and Cut the Ribbon offer fun and exciting gaming experience.
In addition, there are tons of free downloadable apps available in the market for downloading. Most of these apps can be used for free. Smartphones can also connect to the Internet via GPRS or EDGE. Some websites offer free Wi-Fi access for the smart phones, which makes Internet browsing quite faster than dialing a phone number or looking through a list of numbers on a PDA.
Smartphones offer different user experiences depending on their brands. iPhone is one of the most popular and widely used smartphones in the world. HTC Desire HD and LG Optimus are popular second and third choices of smart phones. A first smartphone usually comes with a standard mobile phone card, a non-removable card reader, and an external keyboard, which can either come inbuilt or attached.
