King ‧ Fanny ‧ Conrad ‧ Gordon 10.) List all the electrical devices in your home that are, or could be, operated with remote devices. Try and come up with at least ten.
10.) If each of these devices could communicate with a handheld device such as a PDA, what services should they provide? List services for each device.
Handhelds at work Handheld devices have become ruggedized for use in Handheld computers used at work have molded over time into a variety of form factors, including smartphones on the low end, handheld PDAs, Ultra Mobile PCs, Tablet PCs, and even notebook computers.
Internet faxing with handhelds Most handhelds can be used to send and receive faxes by email using an Internet fax service. Internet faxing also enables handheld users to print documents by sending them to a nearby fax machine. This service is available through most internet fax providers.
Mobile computers Mobile computing is a generic term describing one's ability to use technology while moving, as opposed to portable computers, which are only practical for use while deployed in a stationary configuration. For Example: Notebook PC Ultra-Mobile PC Handheld PC Personal digital assistant/Enterprise digital assistant Graphing calculator Pocket computer (largely obsolete)
Handheld game consoles A handheld game console is a lightweight, portable device with a built-in screen, games controls and speakers. Handheld game consoles are run on machines of small size allowing people to carry them and play them at any time or place. Unlike video game consoles, the controls, screen and speakers are all part of a single unit. For Example: Nintendo DS (NDS) Game Boy, Game Boy Color Game Boy Advance PlayStation Portable (PSP)
Media recorders For example: Digital still camera (DSC) Digital video camera (DVC or digital Camcorder) Digital audio recorders
Media players/displayers For example: Portable media player e-book reader
11.) Conduct a brian-stroming session on the topic "the next big thing/killer application in wireless". Try to come up with at least 10 suggestions. Rank your suggestions in order from the most to the least likely. For the top five in your list perform a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis.
Killer applications and wireless networks Portable devices are incorporated with more and more functionalities, such as photo/video camera, video phone, SMS, PDA, music player, video player, Bluetooth and Wireless LAN. Communication Networks for cell phones evolve around the need for increased bandwidth and better support for internet connections. The Killer Application for these platforms has to be compelling enough that users crave ownership of the latest devices and subscribe to these services, thus driving the future development of mobile networks and Internet.
Examples of current for-profit services provided by network operators Google Maps on iPhone 3G with GPS News and Weather SMS Subscription services Email, Skype, Live! Messenger (SMS forwarding) Electronic Banking and Money Management Movie Showtimes and Ticketing In Japan, cellular subscribers can "call" vending machines to purchase something and have the item billed to their accounts
