The Minimal Differences between the Smart Phone and the Computer

Today, it seems as though computers and phones are practically the same device. Many smart phones can now perform the tasks of computers such as emailing, writing blog posts, and even information storage, while computers are able to perform phone-like functions such as being able to make a call, send a text, or find a phone number.

The integration of computers into cell phones to create the high functioning smart phone has led many to wonder whether or not the smart phone will eventually replace the laptop or computer. Sure, a proper initial reaction is to scoff or wonder about such a blasphemous comment against the computer, but claiming that phones could actually replace computers – especially laptops – isn’t so far fetched.

Smart phones literally have capabilities that surpass some of the best laptops. When was the last time that you saw a laptop with an 8 megapixel camera and LED flash, or were able to verbally speak through your laptop while browsing the web? Sure, some high end laptops have these capabilities, but they are higher in price and not nearly as accessible as a smart phone.

With a smart phone, you can now live stream movies and videos, download songs, shot and edit pictures and HD videos, type and send emails, and create and post blog posts. You can even organize documents and collect data through programs like Evernote. The only drawbacks to owning a smart phone and not a laptop are display size, memory, and a keyboard.[ad#ad-1] Read the rest of this entry »
