Check out these tiny PCs. They offer big benefits

What if your smartphone and PC — and those of your clients — were not two devices, but one?

That’s the idea behind an emerging new trend. As smartphones get more powerful (and more expensive), why not let the devices attach to a keyboard, mouse and display, so they can run office applications like a regular PCs?

Whether this concept will truly take off is anybody’s guess. But it’s an idea smart solution providers need to watch. The potential benefits are impressive, including major cost savings, flexibility and mobility.

At MWC, new tablets from Lenovo and Samsung

Peter Krass's picture

Does it make sense to develop new products for a shrinking market?

Lenovo and Samsung think so. Both companies at this week’s big Mobile World Congress in Barcelona introduced new slate (that is, no keyboard) tablets.

Yet the excitement and growth in tablets belongs not to slate tablets, but to 2-in-1 devices. As we reported yesterday, this week’s MWC has also seen the introductions of new 2-in-1s from Lenovo, HP and Panasonic.

New 2-in-1 devices from Lenovo, HP, Panasonic

At this week’s Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, three suppliers — Lenovo, HP Inc. and Panasonic — introduced nice 2-in-1 devices.

These new devices are worth your attention because 2-in-1s stand out in an otherwise lackluster PC market. For good reason, too. Today’s 2-in-1s combine the power of a PC with the touchscreen convenience of a tablet and the portability of a smartphone. Plus, they can switch among these varied roles in mere seconds.

How Intel is laying the IoT foundation with 5G

Peter Krass's picture

Assuming the Internet of Things develops as expected, IoT sensors and other connected devices will soon be sending far more information than current data networks can handle.

The solution? Many point to 5G networks. As we detailed in a recent post, 5G technology promises high speeds, low latency and full support for low-bitrate devices and sensors. These are features your clients’ IoT implementations will need.
