SmartPhones are the evolutionary product of cell phones and personal digital assistants (PDA). Once upon a time, cell phone simply offered the ability to make calls over a wireless network. Back then, PDA’s were portable devices which simply stored data from your computer, such as your contact list or to do list so that you could carry it around in your briefcase.

In time, cell phones evolved to offer you the ability to send text messages, while PDA’s gained the ability to send emails.

Software Expands Functionality

Your SmartPhone has an operating system, just like your computer. That means you can download software for your SmartPhone. Top choices include but are not limited to:

* Playlist or personal jukebox of your favourite songs.


A cell phone lets you type text, however you are limited to using what I call the Morse Code Keyboard. For example, to type the letter “c”, tap the number “2″ three times. In my opinion, cell phone typing is tedious and time consuming with a high level of frustration on the side!

A QWERTY keyboard is named for its layout. If you look at your computer keyboard, you will note that the top line of letters from left to right reads Q-W-E-R-T-Y, hence the name QWERTY keyboard. It’s kind of fun to say and its certainly easy to use. Smartphone’s have QWERTY keyboards, making texts, emails and document editing a breeze! No more Morse Code!
