The Linux-Mobile-Guide is a guide for users of Linux and laptops, notebooks, PDAs and other mobile computers. This guide was former known as Linux-Laptop-HOWTO but was now extended to cover Linux and mobile computer devices in general (laptops, PDAs, mobile cell phones, digital cameras, calculators, wearables, ...) These devices are different from desktop/tower computers. They use certain hardware such as PCMCIA cards, infrared and BlueTooth ports, batteries, docking stations. Hardware parts cannot be changed as easily as in a desktops, e.g. the graphic card. Often their hardware is more limited (e.g. disk space, CPU speed).
This document is aimed at writers and translators of Linux HOWTOs or any other paper for the Linux Documentation Project. It gives them hints at using tools including Emacs and Ispell.
