The Emerging Mobile Digital Platform
As computing increasingly takes place over the network, new mobile digital computing platforms have emerged. Communication devices such as cell phones and smartphones such as the BlackBerry and iPhone have taken on many functions of handheld computers, including transmission of data, surfing the Web, transmitting e-mail and instant messages, displaying digital content, and exchanging data with internal corporate systems. The new mobile platform also includes small, low-cost lightweight subnotebooks called netbooks, optimized for wireless communication and Internet access, with core computing functions such as word processing, and digital e-book readers such as Amazon’s Kindle with some Web access capabilities. More and more business computing is moving from PCs and desktop machines to these mobile devices; managers increasingly use these devices to coordinate work and communicate with employees.The Emerging Mobile Digital Platform As computing increasingly takes place over the network, new mobile digital computing platforms have emerged.
