What are Smartphones?
Smartphones are digital wireless phones that can send and receive voice, data and video as well as storing information and running software. Features vary from phone to phone, but all can connect to the internet for e-mail and web access. A smartphone consolidates mobile phone technology with that of the Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) to create a powerful mobile communication tool.
Most of the latest smartphones can also incorporate 3G capabilities. 3G stands for third generation and is a collective term for the new communication procedures, standards, and devices that will improve the speed and quality of services available on the move. 4G services are expected soon as the Government sells llicences for the 4G network in the UK.
