Abstract

Usually it is very difficult to work on a small screen on a mobile device. For example, performing the following tasks may be difficult: - viewing an attachment; - typing on the device - organizing the contents on the go - Web browsing or browsing the internet Also, many third-party host platforms have no substantial I/O support such as QWERTY keyboard, wide screen etc. We need a better way of handling this without any additional software installation on the guest platforms including (Windows, Linux and Solaris). The proposed solution is a thin PDA client which will be activated over a USB, Bluetooth, or any other form of connection done to any desktop or laptop guest device. The thin client will be residing in the permanent store on the device and will be activated over the connection and push the applocation to the host/guest platform and will provide input/output services in a more convenient fashion to the PDA users. The updates will be stored on the device. The possible update will be e-mail typing, attachment view, even mobile transport service browsing.

Usually it is very difficult to work on a small screen on a mobile device. For example, performing the following tasks may be difficult:

 - viewing an attachment;

 - typing on the device

 - organizing the contents on the go

 - Web browsing or browsing the internet

Also, many third-party host platforms have no substantial I/O support such as QWERTY keyboard, wide screen etc.

We need a better way of handling this without any additional software installation on the guest platforms including (Windows, Linux and Solaris).

The proposed solution is a thin PDA client which will be activated over a USB,  Bluetooth, or any other form of connection done to any desktop or laptop guest device. The thin client will be residing in the permanent store on the device and will be activated over the connection and push the applocation to the host/guest platform and will provide input/output services in a more convenient fashion to the PDA users. The updates will be stored on the device. The possible update will be e-mail typing, attachment view, even mobile transport service browsing.
