Modern technology offers a lot to a general consumer. However to keep pace
with it one may need to carry a lot of devices, like MP3 player, laptop,
GPS receiver, etc. What if all those could be combined in one device, which
would be at the same time small enough to fit into the pocket. That is
exactly what some new Smartphones and PDAs are. But even if your mobile
phone does not have some of those features there is a way to add them.
There are third party manufacturers which make external GPS receivers, WiFi
cards and many other extensions that can be connected to the phone via the
mini (micro) SD slot or Bluetooth.
SD (Secure Digital) is the most common standard used for the data storage,
now its smaller modifications – mini or micro SD are used in mobile phones.
But there are also other accessories, apart from the data storage, that can
be connected to the mini (micro) SD slot of the phone. The leader on this
market is SPECTEC. SPECTEC offers the following cards and extensions: * WiFi cards – adds WiFi to PDA * GPS cards – adds GPS Receiver to PDA * Bluetooth cards – adds Bluetooth to PDA * Video-Out – enables PDA to display screen over projector or external
As one can see above, one can add WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, and even video
output to a PDA. Suppose, you are going to a business meeting. Just load
all your documents into your PDA, then connect the Video-Out adaptor and
you can impress your partners making a presentation from your phone. There
are also some other extension cards that enable PDA to implement home
automation, to monitor real time health condition and even more. So, if you
need one of those functions, just insert the respective card and here you
Even if there is no SD slot in your phone, you can use some extensions that
connect to the phone via Bluetooth. For example, SPECTEC offers a Bluetooth
GPS receiver. This has also the advantage that the SD slot remains
available for the storage card.
Some WiFi cards can also store data. So, one can add WiFi to PDA while
still having up to 2 GB of data storage in the card. The only drawback with
such cards is that they have non-standard size, so that the card protrudes
out of the SD slot. Because of that one cannot keep the card permanently in
the phone, however one can easily insert it when WiFi connection is needed.
SPECTEC do not sell their products online, however, one can easily find
many online resellers on the Web. There are also other manufacturers of
such cards. A good place to search for them is at Amazon.com. So, if you
have an older device that does not support all of the new features or, if
you have some very special idea in mind, just search the Web for the
appropriate extension card to empower your phone the way you want.
