Kevin C. Tofel has posted a fantastic article over at jkOnTheRun that got me thinking. The article talks about mobility And how the features of his UMPC have augmented his smartphone.
In answering a reader’s question about what smartphone software he recommends, Kevin talks about how most of the functionality he used on his smartphone simply works better on his UMPC. I also have noticed a big change in how I use my mobile devices. Ever since I started using standby and sleep molds, my laptop usage has changed dramatically.
I have found that using standby allows me to get to my desktop faster and with minimal hassle. Since about February of this year, my laptop has become more useful and I have become more productive. Unfortunately, this also means that I have been using my smartphone much less than I have in the past.
On my pocket PC I have many software packages installed, but find myself using them less and less often. For example, I have a blogging client on my pocket PC but rarely use it because it is much harder than using the client on my laptop. I also have a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse for my device but again find it cumbersome to use.
While I do not have a UMPC device, I have noticed a significant difference in how well use mobile computers. So how has a UMPC or other mobile computer change the way you use your smartphone?
