But the rapid increase in processing speeds and chip densities, coupled with the advancement of display technology, has lowered the cost of computing power, sparking the development of whole new classes of computing and communications devices.

Today we have notebooks, subnotebooks, mini-notebooks, hand-held PCs, personal digital assistants, smart phones, and two-way pagers. But we don’t need to tell you that; you probably already have two
