Nokia Smartphone Hacks: Mini but Mighty SmartPhone Powers Mobile Computing
Sebastopol, CA--"Smartphones are not only our smallest computers, but also our most connected computers," says author Michael Juntao Yuan. His new Nokia Smartphone Hacks (Yuan, O'Reilly, US $24.95) shows readers how to trick out their Nokia smartphones so they are more productive and more fun than ever before.
A Nokia smartphone is much more than a voice communications device. "Today's Nokia mobile phone is a voice, text, and multimedia communications hub, a personal information manager, a web browser, a multimedia entertainments center, a game console, and an extensible platform for new applications," says Yuan, a mobile alpha geek who knows how to make the best and most efficient use of each and every Nokia smartphone feature.
"In terms of computing power," says Yuan, "a typical smartphone in 2005 is roughly equivalent to a top-of-the-line PC in the middle 1990s in terms of both CPU speed and memory size." But unlike any desktop or laptop, the smartphone can be connected to the Internet all the time, and it can interact with the world around it through its camera, voice recognition, and traditional phone keypad. With impressive storage options and a host of networking protocols, a smartphone is the only mobile computer people need.
Whether they want to use their smartphone as a lifeline while on the road or just as a way to spend time more wisely while waiting in lines, readers will want to customize it, add features to it, and make it work better than ever. For everyone who wants to make the most of mobile technology and unlock their Nokia's full potential, Nokia Smartphone Hacks delivers innovative, powerful hacks for:
With these clever, time-saving tips, tools, and secrets, smartphone owners will quickly go from being casual mobile phone users--those who (gasp!) use them only for voice calls--to mobile computing wizards.
