Use Mobile Phone Technology

Mobile phones are definitely one of the hottest gadgets of recent times. People don’t just want another phone for making or accepting calls, they want something very stylish and chic which they can flaunt. The companies manufacturing handsets are emphasizing on the designs and features that would attract the consumers. Let us help you understand a little bit more about multiuse mobile phone technology.

With your handset equipped with camera, you can click pictures wherever you are. The higher the resolution of these cameras, the better the picture quality is. One can opt for a VGA (Video Graphics Array) or mega pixel cameras. The photos clicked on these camera enabled mobile phones can be easily transferred and stored in a computer with the help of various software.

An Mp3 player is another appealing feature of these mobile phones. You can listen to your favorite number even when you’re on the go. In-built FM is also incorporated, keeping in mind the needs of the music lovers.

You surely want your handset to look ultra suave. So how can one miss out the touch screen feature? You can access all applications with your finger tips. It’s much more convenient and impressive than the keypad.

Bluetooth and infrared technologies in your cell phones allows you to transfer your desired pictures, ring tones and music from your friend’s mobile in seconds. Bluetooth wireless technology also enables you to transfer data from your mobile, directly into the computer without using the USB port. Moreover you can use it as a modem.

IF you always wish to stay connected to the rest of the world, then mobile Internet feature is something you will appreciate. With the GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) and GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) in your handset, you can browse the internet anytime anywhere. You will be always connected to your friends, folks and colleagues through e-mail. You can sit at home and make railway reservation, shop through e-shopping, make new friends through the social networking sites, finish your college assignment while sipping coffee in your favorite café or make your payments through e-banking, there are ample number of things you can do with internet on your mobile phone.

The Future of Mobile Phone Technology

One thing is certain with mobile phone technology; its development could be seen to be infinite, as manufacturers will never run out of new ideas to make the latest handsets work faster and easier to use. Modern Smartphone’s are a prime example of this, packed full with the latest applications, which run on ever more advanced operating systems all with the aim of catching the consumers eye.

There has been one technology banded around mobile phone shops around the world for the last 12 months “3D screen enabled handsets” 12 months ago it was but a rumor but now it is no more! As the future Smartphone will definitely have a 3D User interface added to its already long list of features. Currently LG seem to be the manufacturer with a handset closest to launch.

LG are not giving full package specs but they are pointing out to have improved the cross talk problem (Well, the instant where your neighbor could see everything you type and watch on your phone). The improved parallax barrier is the trick they have used here. But one company that has been tremendous on getting it right on the parallax barrier is the Samsung 3D mobile phones. Wonder if LG will smoke out Samsung on this aspect. Sharp 3D mobile phones also hit the market a while back, and I must say that was a breakthrough for Sharp; they were even buffed up when their 3D idea on Nintendo hit it big in the market.

So 3D mobile phones are what should be on my to-get-list? But I have a problem keeping with the trend; especially when the whole idea of 3D technology on movies and games is yet to settle in my head. The whole Optimus 2x idea has my head in the cloud when my only understanding of Optimus is the autobot superhero in the Transformers movies.

But one thing is certain; to get your hands on 3D mobile phones like the LG Optimus, you will have to spend a lot of money, as all new technology is highly priced when first available. Do not let that put you off though as with all technologies, once 3D handsets have been around for a while the technology will become as common as cameras are in today’s mobiles and the prices on PAYG, sim free and pay monthly contract will fall to more affordable levels.

Future Mobile Phone Technology

What are Wi-Fi phones? Wi-Fi phones are cordless phones that connect to Wi-Fi hotspots in order to communicate. Wi-Fi is a technology to transmit data at high speeds wirelessly. Wi-Fi phones use the same technology used in VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). VoIP is a new technology that allows users to make long distance calls for free, but there is a limitation that the call must come from a computer. These new Wi-Fi phones make it possible to use the VoIP to call without being connected to a computer. They use same wireless network technology that computers use. Wi-Fi phones can call to a computer, another cellular device, landline phone or to VoIP address.

Wi-Fi phones are a part of Smartphone. Smartphones are hand held phones that have pc like features. A usual Smartphone would come with GPS, email and eBooks capabilities. Smartphones also have options of installing and external application to satisfy your growing needs. Here is a summary of features that a Smartphone is capable of performing:

Send and receive phone calls.
Managing personal information like contacts and appointments.
Connecting and communicating with other devices like a PC, laptop or a Smartphone itself.
E-mail and instant messaging.
Office applications like word and pdf.
Capture and play audio and video in standardized formats.

Smart-phones have a high processing speed in the range of 200 to 700 MHz The smartphones uses ARM processor. These processors are highly power efficient and are used in printers, mp3 players and other small devices. They have a built in memory plus an expansion slot for extra storage. The software of a Smartphone can be visualized in layers as follows:

Kernel: It is the heart of the software; it manages all the software processes and drivers.
Middleware: It consists of all the software libraries and APIs required for application execution.
User interface layout: The GUI and layouts are present here.
Applications: Here is where the applications are stored and ready to be executed.

Every phone has an Operating System (OS). The OS of a Smartphone controls the functions and enables the interaction of the hardware with the software. A Wi-Fi phone initially connects to the Wi-Fi hotspot, based on the connection it check for VoIP capabilities and places a VoIP call on user’s request. Just like a pc, packets of data are exchanged between the router and the phone during a phone call. From a hardware point of view, wireless phones transmit signals at a different frequency. The general phones transmit at 850 MHz whereas the wireless phones use the Wi-Fi 802.11b or 802.11g signals that transmit at 2.5 GHz. In a Wi-Fi phone, as the number is entered it is converted into packets and sent to the wireless receiver. The wireless receiver sends the call to the internet like any other VoIP call. When the conversation is started the voice is also transmitted in packets. Some Wi-Fi phones use a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) protocol. Calls can be made by just entering the desired SIP address. SIP is one of the standard protocols for handling voice data. Currently Wi-Fi phones do not have a lot of potential due to lack of Wi-Fi routers all around the country. So it is not necessary that everyone who has a Wi-Fi phone has a wireless connectivity in order to receive calls. Some Wi-Fi phones come with a GSM feature hence the user can receive calls with or without a Wi-Fi connection. VoIP uses a lot of bandwidth, if the router gets too crowded then loss in quality will occur, such problems prevent the current growth of Wi-Fi phones.
