Recalibrate: How 5G is Transforming the Computer in your Pocket
In just a few short decades, computers have developed from clunky, 30-pound hunks of table-top electronics into a sleek, high-functioning pocket device. This transformation is no better epitomized than with Samsung’s latest Galaxy cell phones, tiny but powerful pocket computers with up to 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.
So how can we best utilize these powerful palm computers? On this episode of Recalibrate, we discussed how Samsung’s DeX integration capitalizes on the power of these pocket devices, and how its mobile technology’s capabilities can transform all kinds of industries, from manufacturing to healthcare.
This Recalibrate episode is a technological deep dive into all things cloud computing with Reid Estreicher and Ray Couey of Samsung B2B, Dr. Simon Lok, CTO of RGNets, and host Jason Claybrook. Estreicher said it best when he describes the Samsung Galaxy S10 as “a really tiny computer.” And with the power of such a laptop in your hand, DeX then comes into play, using this operating system as a tether for in-the-moment cloud-based work.
“DeX is a way that allows you to bring the hardware power of it into a realm where the user experience is such that you can actually harness that,” Dr. Lok said. The limitations of working on a small screen are eliminated with DeX. By using external input devices, the DeX feature can make a working computer out of any TV or monitor.
So how is this feature used in our daily lives? Picture being a doctor or nurse, bustling throughout a hospital from floor to floor. With a DeX device, your operating system goes with you, creating a “centralized cluster of machines,” wherever you are.
Additionally, DeX adds the privacy feature of secure access, via fingerprint or retina read, as opposed to the chaos of working on an open workstation. With a computer in our pockets, tech’s top thinkers elaborate on the power of mobile technology and its implications across industries on this episode of Recalibrate.
