The rise of thesmartphone
s I was playing aroundwith a number of newentry-level smartphonesthat graced our office lastmonth, it struck me howpowerful these deviceshave become. Only a fewyears ago, you wouldhave being hard pressedto find any phone witheverything fromWi-Fi, 3G, aGPS, pushemail and a decentcamera onboard, not tomention even the ever-growing amount of apps.Now they retail forbetween R2000 andR3000, carrying almost allthe functionality of thehigher priced device, onlywith a slower processorand lower resolution screen.I would like to believe thattablets will soon be heading towards better prices too, and if Amazon’s recent announcement of the 7" Kindle Fire, retailingfor a mere $200, is anything to go by, there are some difficultdecisions for a number of tablet manufacturers lying ahead.Enjoy the issue,Mike (firstname.lastname@example.org)
