Some Perspective re the growth and size of mobile
technology

What does all this mean?


There is great potential for world wide growth in
mobile internet.


Some interesting facts
:

In 1909 E.M. Forster wrote Short story “The
Machine Stops”, describing internet. But it was
non mobile. http://www.plexus.org/forster/


In 2005 the then CEO of Google Eric Schmidt said
“The future of the internet is mobile”. “People are
mobile”

Differences between an Ipad and an Android Pad

Its like the difference between a Mac and a PC




Designed and marketed

iPad by Apple


Android


by
numerous Corporations but all use the same operating system
owned by Google


Operating System
-

iPad runs on iOS operating system,
(proprietary, not free)


Android is the operating system and is
free.


Revenue
-

Apple generates revenue by selling Ipads


Google
generates no revenue from the sale of Android pads


Most of Googles revenue (96 % in 2011) comes from advertising on it search results


The companies associated with Ipads and Android Pads operate
on completely different business models


Difference between a Pad and a Phone

The difference between PCs, tablets and mobile
technology

Re the previous slides



The differentiations between devices tends to be marketing rather than technological



The saying "You get what you pay for" does not apply in computing



Because of technological concepts such as
"Cloud Computing"

some of the
Differences between PC's, Laptops, Tablets and Phones may not apply


ie The result of a particular function on low performance device such as a pad or a
phone may appear faster than on a very fast PC. eg's Voice recognition and rendered
images




The future technology is unknown

How the Internet appears on a tablet

But first, how do you operate a tablet or a phone



By gestures, ie touching the screen is some way (See next slide)




I will be showing how an Android Tablet works. (you will see it operating on your
screen)



If you want to know how I am doing this, ask me at the end of the session







How the Internet appears on a tablet

The gestures functions of a tablet/phone.


To
Select or Activate

something, touch it.


Touch & hold

: Touch & hold an item on the screen by touching it and not lifting your finger until an
action occurs.


Drag
: Touch & hold an item for a moment and then, without lifting your finger, move your finger on
the screen until you reach the target position. For example, you can drag to reposition shortcuts on
the Home screen.


Swipe or slide
: Quickly move your finger across the surface of the screen, without pausing when
you first touch (so you don't drag something instead) . For example, you can slide a Home screen
left or right to view the other Home screens.



Double
-
tap

: Tap quickly twice on a webpage, map, or other screen to zoom. For example, double
-
tap a webpage in Browser to zoom in, and double
-
tap again to zoom out.


Pinch
: In some apps (such as Maps, Browser, and Gallery), you can zoom in and out by placing
two fingers on the screen at once and pinching them together (to zoom out) or spreading them apart
(to zoom in).


How the Internet appears on a tablet

Getting around the screen


Back: Opens the previous screen you were working in,
even if it was in a different app. Once you back up to the
Home screen, you can’t go back any further in your
history.


Home: Opens Home. If you're viewing a left or right Home
screen, opens the central Home screen.


Recent apps Opens a list of thumbnail images of apps
you've worked with recently. To open an app, touch it. To
remove a thumbnail from the list, swipe it left or right.


All Apps: Touch it to see all your apps and widgets

Apps are started by touching their icon, On the Home or
All Apps screen

How will the different business models of the major
players affect the future of mobile internet.



It has been said that 80% of technology to be purchased
in the next 5 years has yet to be invented
