Facts (and opinions)

Kindle Fire (at <$200 price tag) started affordable trend.

You cannot touch type 80 words per minute with 2 fingers or 2 thumbs.

A Tablet (or slate) typically is not a PC replacement for most business users – but it can help drive MORE productivity.

What you buy will be of use, even after it is “outdated” by the next version

Ultra-Lights and Tablets now share specs (ie. Microsoft Surface, Lenovo ultra books)

Operating Systems (O/S)

iOS6 (Apple) – 30% market share of all smart phone users.

850,000 devices being activated by Google daily

The O/S Implications To You

Keep using what you enjoy using.

You have to keep your eyes open to the other tools available. Ie., Blackberry owned the mobile space 10 years ago. In the 1st3 months of NEW 2012 sales, only 6.7% of new sales were Blackberries.

Learn and/or experiment with Android and iOS devices if you have not already.

Will Windows 8 change the Tablet and Smartphone universe?

SmartPhones – Enough Choices

Not listing all the phone choices, but rather focusing on

You want to buy dual-core processor at minimum.

You want to understand your operating system, especially if you can upgrade it.

Your smartphone is just a smaller footprint of your tablet. You might just need a smartphone to keep you happy.

Talking to phones is NOT just Apple (Siri). Others used it before Apple marketed it.

SmartPhones - Continued

Lucky to have a phone “last” 2 years. “It Is The Most Amazing Phone Ever” phenomenon.

Protect the phone with a case or bumpers

Lock your phone AND be able to remote erase it

Symantec Corp did a test of “lost phones” 43% of finders clicked on “online banking” 57% of finders clicked on “saved passwords” Only 50% of finders offered to return the phone

Your phone is very connected to your office and life data – both need to be protected

(5)

SmartPhones – cont. again

Buy and use your phone (or tablet). If you worry to long, it will just be replaced with something new.

Carrier specific is so important to your choices, to get a reduced phone price (contract)

Ie. iPhone 5 with 2 year plan is $100. Buy the phone unlocked from Apple.com, approx. $600

Unlocked phones (cost more to buy upfront) can save you money in the long term (less costly monthly plan over 2 years).

Why A Browser

Write one application on your server in HTML5 (Hyper Text Markup Language, version 5).

HTML5 will work with all browsers.

You don’t need to publish an App (Apple, Google, etc..). Remember – publisher do pay for their Apps.

Some Publishers will move to HTML5 content, and not create Apps. Apps not going away, but if developing, HTML5 platform is first look.

Getting Connected On The Go

Discussing Data Plans from cell providers (not about access points at a restaurant, coffee shop or businesses for Wi-Fi) Device (your Tablet or Smartphone) can have a plan

Down side is additional costs if just for tablet (and not a cell phone)

5GB data plan a month cost $50. 5GB/month is
