Mobile phone technology has been progressing so fast that even 5 years make a huge difference. Just a few years ago Smartphones were working only with Symbian OS and Palm OS. Later Microsoft created Windows Mobile and even Palm was forced to switch to that system. But more recently the iPhone changed the whole concept of a smartphone and now iPhone and Android are becoming the main players on the smartphone market. But what about Windows Mobile? Will it be pushed away completely? I don’t think so and let me explain why.
Many professionals still choose Windows Mobile because they prefer its simple straightforward interface to the overstuffed environment of iPhone and Android. Besides, Windows Mobile supports a very wide variety of different phone configurations, like phones with physical buttons, touch-screen phones, those that combine both physical buttons and touch-screen. The iPhone does not offer that flexibility of choice and there are not many Android devices that have solid buttons. This is not just a matter of habit, when you have to type a lot, real solid buttons prove to be more convenient. The variety of different configurations of Windows Mobile phones is not limited to the keypad, apart from the standard “candy bar” configuration, there are flip phones, slider phones, vertical and horizontal layout and many other different features.
Of course the user interface is not the only strong side of Windows Mobile. Its main advantage lies in the best system compatibility with MS Windows. PCs running Microsoft Windows occupy by far the largest share of the computer market. And of course, as both systems come from the same origin, they have the best compatibility. And of course, the user interface is not the only strong side of Windows Mobile. Its strong points include a reliable battery, good screen resolution, comfortable keyboard, strong processor and good connectivity. And now let the cutting-edge nature of Windows Mobile and iPhone be revealed.
Both systems support Flash applications. iPhone and Windows Mobile have cross-platform compatibility allowing me to write HTML email and HTML rich Internet applications for both systems. And of course, I can also use my existing PC files in any of the systems. The common thing is that such support for different OS software and different platforms are notiform. Surface has support for Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista, iPhone supports almost all the OS versions, and Android supports almost all the platforms. So if your company uses Windows Mobile and you are planning to upgrade to iPhone, you should not be worried. To take advantage of this, you should have the original software and devices on hand. If your current employee still prefers Windows Mobile, or Android, he should be able to carry his old device on his new computer and be assured of the compatibility.
The employee does not need to change his computer or buy new hardware all together. He can continue using his old PC with the latest software attached to his old device. And the company can enjoy the benefits of not having to replace the entire system with a new system in future.
Let’s summarize the advantages of the integrated system and its corresponding advantages:
integrates all the key functionalities including messaging, calendar, address book, media player, browser and registry;
operates using integrated infrastructure;
can access the Internet from any device with published access;
can buy and download new software without the costs of purchasing new software;
can sell in superior online market;
can search for software easier;
can get better service from the manufacturers;
can compare the prices of software and devices in an online market.
In summary, an integrated system can be said to be a combination of sophisticated software, services and hardware of the computer with the human brain of the user. This User System has many more features and applications than the Apple Macintosh. With the help of such a system, mankind can accomplish a lot more within a short time and develop itself according to the ever-changing needs of modern times.
