Mobile computing can be referred as any computation carried out on a mobile device. In mobile computing, the services provided by servers or a group of distributed computer systems synchronize and connect via the protocols of mobile communication.
Mobile computing in broader sense describes the ability of using a technology in order to connect wirelessly and use centralized information and application software with the utilization of portable, communication devices and wireless computing.
It provides distributed (decentralized) computations on different devices, networks and systems which are synchronized, mobile and interconnected through the standards of mobile communication and its protocols. Mobile devices are not restricted to just one and only one application such as voice communication. It also offers enormous applications to be installed on a specific mobile.
It means the combination of the computing devices with the environmental objects. It defines the integration and incorporation of computers into all practical objects in our day today lives and bestowing them with the computing abilities. It is based on pervasive computing.
Pervasive denotes “something existing in each and every part of a place or a thing”. It takes into consideration the environment wherein the communication and information technology is used by everyone all the time. It considers the use of sensors, actuators and integrated processors connected with high speed networks and then combined with the new devices for display and view purpose.
So mobile computing is also known as pervasive computing when a group of computing networks, systems or devices have certain characteristics viz application aware adaptation, transparency and the ability of environment sensing.
An example of mobile computing can be a mobile phone having multiple applications which serve the purpose of computing. Other examples could be MMS (multimedia messaging service), SMS (short message service), email, calendar, web browsing, phone etc. Mobile computing has a compatibility with the popular PIM (Personal Information Management) software.
Other examples of mobile computing can be a Bluetooth capability of hands free talking via car kits, ear buds and a headset.
Applications of Mobile Computing IN Video and Music:-
Computing has swiftly grown as it used to confine to only one single location. With the help of mobile computing, one can work from any comfortable location as long as the security and connection issues are perfectly factored. In the same way, the availability of high speed internet connections has also promoted the growth of mobile computing.
With the emerging and ever growing technology, mobile computing will definitely continue to be a major service in terms of computing and information/communication Technology.
