Mobile computing

A few weeks ago I presented at an e-learning colloquium here on campus, where I briefly summed up a few ideas of where I think technology can add value to education.  One of the points I finished with, was the idea that computing is becoming more mobile, with cellphones taking over roles traditionally attributed to laptops.

I just wanted to point out this article suggesting that an iPhone may be a suitable laptop replacement.  No definite conclusion is reached in the article, but there are a few interesting ideas presented.

Here’s the link:

It should be noted that the blog in question is “The Apple blog“, so objectivity may be lacking 🙂
