    If you are talking about mobile computing as in embedded devices:
    Mobile phones
    GPS/Sat nav
    MP3 Players

    You mean that sort of thing?

    any vehicle with EFI(Electronic Full Injection), which is almost everything today, has an
    ECM(Electronic Control Module) to manage the engine and transmission -- the ECM is an analog computer.

    any device with a GPS feature is using a computer to solve the triangulation from three
    sattelites to find your position on the planet -- thats solving a set trig equations using a digital computer.

    every cell phone with an address list has a digital computer, and phones which run games or other applications -- that's digital too.
