Maybe you’ve dreamed of easier computing? You want a simple way to use your computer at the office, at home, and even on the go. But you don’t really want 3 separate computers with 3 separate hard drives to scan for viruses and update the operating system and the list goes on and on. The answer is simple, and Motorola with a leg up from Android seems to be paving the way … your phone is a computer running Linux (nice and secure).
PHONE AS A COMPUTER
Its a simple idea, really. You currently have to deal with a clunky desktop computer that becomes out-of-date and eventually needs to be scrapped. You face the same with your favorite laptop that will also become aged and need to be replaced. A better alternative would be finding a great monitor, keyboard and mouse and replacing the computer with a dockable “cell phone as computer”. Just plug the phone into its dock and you can use your full-size keyboard, mouse, printer and monitor to do your work. Surf, print, use your favorite word processor to write a proposal, update your calendar — most of the things a full-size computer can do now. When its time to leave for work, you grab your “computer”, your smart phone actually, and carry it with you. At your office you plug it into a dock carry on with your software and settings the way you prefer them. Pretty cool idea, huh? There’s more…
PORTABLE COMPUTING & PORTABLE MEDIA LIBRARY
After work on a bus or in a friend’s car on the way home go home, you pull out your laptop (really a monitor + keyboard + dock), and dock your phone into it … check on weather for tomorrow, plan dinner. With some time left you may log into your Gmail and catch up with personal emails (zero inbox!), then jump into GCalendar and color code events in your calendar for the next couple of days or so.
