Mobile computing is the crossover between two technologies: fixed wireless applications and mobility applications. Advances in wireless networking technology have brought about a new genre of computing called mobile computing, in which users carry portable devices that have access to a shared infrastructure independent of their physical location. This provides continuous access to networked services and flexible communication between people located anywhere. Mobile computing is revolutionizing the way people are using computers. Mobile computing in its most general sense refers to the use of any computer that is not connected by physical wires to the server or host computer with which it needs to interact. The required interaction occurs through a wireless, real-time connection, a batch synchronization procedure, or a combination of both. With several innovative ideas in the software market, lots of resultant innovations are seen on the mobile computing front. The companies that have not innovated and have not evolved their platform are forced to take a backseat in the market. Companies focused on mobile computing platforms are turning old models on their head. So, in effect, there are more innovative solutions coming out than ever before. Innovation will continue to spur change across all classes of devices.
The challenge of today’s mobile computing environments is to give users access to any information at any time, from any place, in any form. The current innovative audio and video experiences in mobile computing are attracting new users and creating new opportunities for developers. New mobile products, platform innovations and industry enabling programs are ensuring the growth of this industry.
