Top Three Favorite Smartphones

Updated on May 6, 2011

Now you can enjoy not just mobile phone but also a smartphone. I think smartphones are really fun because you may experience their many exciting offers like scheduling business meetings, tracking your family’s schedule, reading email, or surfing the web. It's much more than just a cell phone. Like you transfer your office into your cell phone. Imagine you could do your job without tied out on your desk. I mean, if you feel stuck and bored with your office, you could manage your work in the park.

What is Smartphone ?

Smart phones are almost the same with PDA (Personal Digital Assistant Phone) A smartphone is a mobile phone offering advanced capabilities, often with PC-like functionality. There is no industry standard definition of a smartphone. For some, a smartphone is a phone that runs complete operating system software providing a standardized interface and platform for application developers For others, a smartphone is simply a phone with advanced features like e-mail, Internet and e-book reader capabilities, and/or a built-in full keyboard or external USB keyboard and VGA connector. In other words, it is a miniature computer that has phone capability. I think smartphone is great for people with many mobile activities.

Most smartphones take pictures and capture video, but the most common multimedia function is the ability to play MP3s, sit back, relax, and enjoy your favorite tunes while traveling or during breaks.

      Hi febriedethan, This is a very informative hub. Thank you for awesome info. A client of mine was telling me about the smart phone. I lost my appointment book a couple of weeks ago. It was not good.

      Then I would probably loose the smart phone. Kidding. Keep on feb, your hubs are great. Blessings galore sister.
