So as I promised I wil be doing head to head analysis of a smart phone with a Laptop in my next Blog so here we go but before that lets just see how smartphones are catching up with notebooks.
The world for the first time saw a cell phone back in 1970’s and So was the laptop but inmost of the countries the devices got acceptance in late 80’s and early nineties. Nokia Started with a boom in Asian Markets with the launch of its first series out of which Nokia 3310 And similar phones had skyrocketing sales and Nokia became the market leader in cell phone category in the Asian Markets.
On the Other Hand IBM launched their computer systems in Asian Markets which was the need for the day and became the market leaders at that point in time.
Coming to the point of doing head to head comparison of a smartphone with a laptop so lets pick upp the hottest phone of the month that is : Galaxy S4 and lets compare it with Asus Ultra book.In general, laptops and smartphones have very different platforms and hardware, so evaluating their performance can be a bit tricky.
