Samsung Galaxy A line is intended for the public looking for intermediate models that contain, above all, a good construction. The Galaxy A9, known out there as Galaxy A9 Pro, fulfills these requirements well, and brings with it a great differential-literally great-which is its 5000 mAh battery. Find out how my days were testing out the device below. (more…)

Disappear normal computers soon complete from the image area
2012-We live in a very fast time. The technology continues to develop very fast and almost every day new “super hardware” comes onto the market. What you buy today, tomorrow is already old-fashioned, no matter whether TV, notebook or smartphone. Our smartphones, successors of originally designed only for the telephoning of imagined mobile phones, burst now only in front of megahertz, memory and graphicspower. Why should we continue to use them as a mobile companion only if we could possibly work with them in the future? As with the Samsung Galaxy S3, the displays are getting bigger, so that smartphones and tablets could soon merge into a new product category. Perhaps smartphones could make even real computers redundant in the future. So let’s take a look back at the future.
The development from bone to smartphone and the end of the PC era
It is not long ago that I was allowed to look over my first mobile phone. If I remember correctly, it was a Nokia 3310. Man, what was I from the socks. From now on I was always and everywhere accessible. Even the one or the other game found itself on this great mobile phone. A few years later I looked with envious glances at the first people with polyphonic ringtones and even blue display lighting. Madness. Had the great phones. I wanted to have one thing like that. Some years later, my smartphone has long since replaced my MP3 player.Besides, I do not need an extra navigation device, no camera for snapshots, and I can even play really cool games on my mobile companion. The technology, which is present in current smartphones (quad-core CPU with 1.4 GHz, 1 GB of memory), even makes some notebookenvious.
The times have just changed. Every third German now has a smartphone. Among the 30-year-olds, there is even a good 51%, who own a smartphone. As I mentioned earlier, a smartphone can make many other devices now superfluous. It could be that in the near future another device is replaced by our smartphones: the computer. In any case, fewer desktop PCs are sold. The reason for this, of course, are the many, slim and especially mobile alternatives: notebooks and netbooks , ultrabooks and tablets. I myself note that I am less and less sitting at my home computer, because I would rather work on my Apple Macbook.
Smartphones could soon make computers superfluous
The reason for this is quite simple. Current smartphones do not have to hide with their performance. More and more people ask themselves, “Why do I need a quad-core CPU in a mobile?” Of course, a current smartphone does not necessarily have a quad-core CPU to run smoothly. Also, I do not know an app that would not run without such a high-end CPU.Nevertheless, it is good that the technology is so fast. Otherwise, we would probably all still have a clunky computer with 266 MHz at home.
The built-in hardware in smartphones is not only suitable for graphically demanding games, but could also score points in other areas. Therefore, the first companies are working on making “smart” computers from smartphones. There are first models of “notebooks” with integrated docking station. Actually, notebook is the wrong word. It is only a keyboard, a battery and a screen in notebook format. CPU, graphics card and memory are no longer available. This part will be your smartphone in the future. Just dock and a few seconds later you are sitting in front of a full-fledged operating system. For computers, it has been possible to install various operating systems on a hard disk and to start Windows, Linux or Mac OS X as well. Why should this be different on a smartphone?
Some hobbyists have already released versions of Windows 95 and Windows XP on their Android smartphones. Of course these versions ran so far more badly than right. However, it is probably just a matter of time, until you can work with Windows on the smartphone also professionally.
The pioneer: the Motorola Atrix with docking station
Motorola should have been one of the first companies dedicated specifically to this segment.For example, Motorola has been offering a smartphone with the Motorola Atrix for a year, which can also be used as a computer if desired. You can use the Motorola Lapdock or theMotorola HD Multimedia Dock . If you put your Motorola Atrix in one of these components, a second operating system is booted on the monitor. The operating system is a proprietary development of Motorola, but secretly working under the surface is a version of Ubuntu (Linux).
Ubuntu as a solid foundation for future hybrids?
The company behind Ubuntu Linux suggests another path. The company Canonical would like to bring Ubuntu to as many devices as possible. That is why they are working on a special version of the increasingly popular Linux operating system. The first devices with preinstalled Ubuntu are expected to come to market this year. Canonical is a dual-core CPU with 1 GHz, 512 MB of RAM, a GPU for graphics acceleration, an HDMI output and support for USB host mode for keyboard, mouse & co. So if you have such a smartphone in the future, , On which Ubuntu pre-installed, you need only the appropriate docking station. Smartphone into the docking station, Ubuntu starts on the big screen, mouse and keyboard connect to the device – Et voilà: You have a normal computer with Ubuntu installed in front of you. The normal functions of the smartphone are still available to you. So you can get calls and access your contacts as normal as you are in Ubuntu. You can also send SMS or even edit photos that you have previously recorded with your smartphone.
Last but not least there is still another company that is developing something in this direction.Clamcase also wants to launch a laptop dock, the so-called Clambook for iPhone and Android smartphones, by the end of the year . The first pictures show that this is a chic, extremely flat piece of hardware. Unlike Motorola and Canonical, Clamcase does not want to run a separate operating system on the Clambook. So the Clambook “only” as a large screen with keyboard for your smartphone. So here you can marvel at your normal smartphone operating system on this device. Nevertheless, such a keyboard and a larger screen is quite practical. In addition, your smartphone is loaded via the battery installed in the Clambook.You can, for example, enjoy a movie on a large screen and still do not have to worry about your battery.
As we see, some manufacturers are already trying to transform our smartphones into full-featured workstations. The advantages are of course obvious or in the pocket. In the near future, you will not carry your computer in the backpack or the notebooktasche, but in the bag of your laptop and thus also all the important data. If your workstation is equipped with a suitable docking station, you can simply dock your smartphone and sit in front of your usual “computer”, which reminds you of long-gone days. At the end of the day, you just take your smartphone back out of the docking station and, if you want, you can continue working at home exactly where you left off at the office. In addition, such docking stations should be significantly cheaper. Of course, the direct comparison with a full-sized notebook including CPU, memory, graphics card & Co is difficult, but are also significantly more expensive.
Where light is, is also shadow:
It will be fatal of course if you lose your smartphone once. The finder will then not only look forward to great music, various photos and various contacts. He has then found almost your entire computer with all the important documents. But thanks to God, there are different ways to protect your smartphone effectively and to locate or delete it in the event of a theft. In addition, the whole story is still in the children’s shoes. Ubuntu works quite well on different test devices, but runs (still) not so fast, as one might like. But there certainly is a lot of optimization potential and at the latest, if the first smartphones with 2 GB RAM are really there or the first 8-core CPUs are installed, the problem with the missing performance probably quite done. I like this development very well and I can hardly wait to replace my clumsy desktop computer at home by a small docking station.
Excess of acronyms and technical terms makes it difficult to choose the right appliance; find out what each means
