SMS & WAP - Writing Example in English

English for Computers

Not long ago, mobile phones could just transmit voice andSMS messages. Now they can display Internet information thanks to Wireless Application Protocol or WAP. Some hybrid models
combine a phone with a PDA. They look like a regular phone with a dial-pad and a small screen on its front. But if you flip up the front cover you find a larger screen that is touch-sensitive.Some include a virtual keyboard, which pops up when you want to enter email text or a WAP address. But the future is called ‘Thirdgeneration’(3G) mobiles. They transmit a caller’s picture and voice simultaneously. UMTS mobile phones deliver users information,e-commerce, games and videoconferencing via fixed wireless and satellite networks.

Virtual reality lets people interact with artificial objects and environments through three – dimensional computer simulation.In a VR system, you are hooked to a computer through a controlling device, such as a glove, and head-mounted displays give you the feeling of being propelled into an artificial three – dimensional world. The computer brings to life events in a distant, virtual world using databases or real-time objects and sounds. Your senses are immersed in an illusionary yet sensate world. VR can be applied to anything from video games, testing motor vehicle, visiting a virtual exhibition, to checking out imaginary kitchen designs.
