Track Your Lost or Stolen Mobile Device

Track Your Lost or Stolen Mobile Device

Smartphones are portable computers devices that combine mobile telephone and computing functions into one unit. They are distinguished from feature phones by their stronger hardware capabilities, extensive mobile operating systems, which facilitate wider software and internet (including web browsing over mobile broadband), multimedia, and gaming functionality, alongside core phone functions such as voice calls and text messaging. 

Smartphones typically contain a number of metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) integrated circuit (IC) chips, include various sensors that can be leveraged by pre-included and third-party software (such as a magnetometer, proximity sensors, barometer, gyroscope, accelerometer and more), and support wireless communications protocols (such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or satellite navigation).

Early smartphones were marketed to the enterprise market, trying to bridge the functionality of standalone personal digital assistants with support for cellular telephony, but were limited by their bulky form, short battery life, slow analog cellular networks, and the immaturity of wireless data services.

These issues were eventually resolved with the exponential scaling and miniaturization of MOS transistors down to sub-micron levels (Moore’s law), the improved lithium-ion battery, faster digital mobile data networks (Edholm’s law), and more mature software platforms that allowed mobile device ecosystems to develop independently of data providers.
