London: Scientists claim to have designed a network proxy which can cut the power consumption of 3G smartphones up to 74 per cent. A team at Aalto University in Finland says its device enhances performance and significantly reduces power usage by serving as a middleman for mobile devices to connect to the Internet and handling the majority of the data transfer for the smart phone.
Historically, the high energy requirements of mobile phones have slowed the adoption of mobile Internet services in developing countries. This new solution is particularly valuable in developing countries because it provides significantly more effective Internet access to a much larger number of people, according to the scientists.
