laptop

laptop computer is a personal computer for mobile use.[1] A laptop has most of the same components as a desktop computer, including a display, a keyboard, a pointing device such as a touchpad (also known as a trackpad) and/or a pointing stick, and speakers into a single unit. A laptop is powered by mains electricity via an AC adapter, and can be used away from an outlet using a rechargeable battery. Laptops are also sometimes callednotebook computersnotebooksultrabooks[2] or netbooks.

Portable computers, originally monochrome CRT-based and developed into the modern laptops, were originally considered to be a small niche market, mostly for specialized field applications such as the military, accountants and sales representatives. As portable computers became smaller, lighter, cheaper, more powerful and as screens became larger and of better quality, laptops became very widely used for all sorts of purposes.

History

Main article: History of laptops

Alan Kay with “Dynabook” prototype (5 November 2008 in Mountain View, California)

As the personal computer (PC) became feasible in the 1970s, the idea of a portable personal computer followed. A “personal, portable information manipulator” was imagined by Alan Kayat Xerox PARC in 1968,[3] and described in his 1972 paper as the “Dynabook“.[4]

The IBM Special Computer APL Machine Portable (SCAMP), was demonstrated in 1973. This prototype was based on the IBM PALM processor (Put All Logic in Microcode or 128 bit).

The IBM 5100, the first commercially available portable computer, appeared in September 1975, and was based on the SCAMP prototype.[5]

As 8-bit CPU machines became widely accepted, the number of portables increased rapidly. The Osborne 1, released in 1981, used the Zilog Z80 and weighed 23.6 pounds (10.7 kg). It had no battery, a 5 in (13 cm) CRT screen, and dual 5.25 in (13.3 cm) single-density floppy drives. In the same year the first laptop-sized portable computer, the Epson HX-20, was announced.[6] The Epson had a LCD screen, a rechargeable battery, and a calculator-size printer in a 1.6 kg (3.5 lb) chassis. Both Tandy/RadioShack and HP also produced portable computers of varying designs during this period.[7][8]

The first laptops using the flip form factor appeared in the early 1980s. The Dulmont Magnumwas released in Australia in 1981–82, but was not marketed internationally until 1984–85. The US$8,150 (US$19,390 today) GRiD Compass 1100, released in 1982, was used atNASA and by the military among others. The Gavilan SC, released in 1983, was the first computer described as a “laptop” by its manufacturer.[9] From 1983 onward, several new input techniques were developed and included in laptops, including the touchpad (Gavilan SC, 1983), the pointing stick (IBM ThinkPad700, 1992) and handwriting recognition (Linus Write-Top,[10] 1987). Some CPUs, such as the 1990 Intel i386SL, were designed to use minimum power to increase battery life of portable computers, and were supported by dynamic power management features such as Intel SpeedStep and AMD PowerNow! in some designs.

Displays reached VGA resolution by 1988 (Compaq SLT/286), and colour screens started becoming a common upgrade in 1991 with increases in resolution and screen size occurring frequently until the introduction of 17″-screen laptops in 2003. Hard drives started to be used in portables, encouraged by the introduction of 3.5″ drives in the late 1980s, and became common in laptops starting with the introduction of 2.5″ and smaller drives around 1990; capacities have typically lagged behind physically larger desktop drives. Optical storage, read-only CD-ROM followed by writeable CD and later read-only or writeable DVD and Blu-ray, became common in laptops soon in the 2s

Windows mobile

History
Windows Mobile was based on the Windows CE kernel and first appeared as the Pocket PC 2000 operating system. It was supplied with a suite of basic applications developed with the Microsoft Windows API , and is designed to have features and appearance somewhat similar to desktop versions of Windows.Third parties can develop software for Windows Mobile with no restrictions imposed by Microsoft.Software applications were purchasable from Windows Marketplace for Mobile during theservice’s lifespan.
Most early Windows Mobile devices came with a stylus,which can be used to enter commands by tapping it on the screen.The primary touch input technology behind most devices were resistive touchscreens which often required a stylus for input. Later devices used capacitive sensing which does not require a stylus. Along with touchscreens a large variety of form factors existed for the platform. Some devices featured slideout keyboards, while others featured minimal face buttons.

Iphone

DESCRIPTION ON IPHONE.
In the two years since the iPhone’s launch, it’s changed the mobile industry. We take a quick look back. Today could herald a revamped iPhone from Apple, at its Worldwide Developer’s Conference. In the two years sincethe phone’s launch, it has changed the world of mobile, bringing about a new age of smartphones with touchscreens, proper mobile browsing, decent music players and third-party applications . There isn’t a mobile manufacturer out there that hasn’t been forced to acknowledge the Apple iPhone – touchscreens are now ubiquitous while everyone from Microsoft to Nokia have launched application stores. For Apple, its iconic phone has helped boost profits – even in the face of a recession. Ahead of the possible launch of the third-generation iPhone, we look back at the short history of the gadget. The rumours… Ahead of the arrival of the first generation iPhone, rumours abounded about how successful the device would be – and what itwould be called. The iPod Phone just doesn’t have the same ring toit… Hard as it may be to believe these days, back in 2006 people couldn’t wrap their minds around the wonder that would be the iPhone. A survey by Entertainment Media Research showed how wrong predictions could be, suggesting the British public wouldn’t want such a device , but would prefer to keep their phones, iPods and browsing separate. The first generation The first ever iPhone was unveiled in January 2007. At the time, Steve Jobs described it as “a revolutionary and magical productthat is literally five years’ ahead of any other mobile phone.” Cisco wasn’t so amazed by the name… as that firm had already registered it as a trademark . The usual legal fireworks ensued, but they have obviously since been sorted. The iPhone hit the US in June, while the UK had to wait until November. Lucky O2 won exclusivity for the shiny new phone, and on 9 November 2007 it went on sale inO2 shops, in addition to the AppleStore and in Carphone Warehouse. Despite the phone’s widespread availability, people queued through the night to be the first to get their hands on one. The second generation: 3G Ahead of the launch of the next iPhone, Apple unveiled its third-party application plans – which eventually evolved into the major success that is the App Store . A year-and-half after the first iPhone, Apple added 3G and refreshed the hardware. Before the iPhone 3G even hit stores in July , it was selling out online . The handset had a few problems, with its charger and security , but overall, it managed to follow its older sibling’s success. The next generation: iPhone 3.0? In March this year, Apple announced it would upgrade its firmware – finally adding the ability to cut and paste . And today, many expect Apple to unveil a 32GB version – although we’ll have to wait until tonight to see exactly what Apple plans for its next iPhone.

Android
