Molecular transistors to help tablets replace laptops

As long as 15 years ago, experts already understood that hardware constraints would limit the miniaturization of electronic devices.

Smartphones and tablet computers are considered the hardware of the postpersonal- computer future, but they have a number of limitations, including limited RAM (random access memory), which reduces the number of applications that can be used simultaneously. This even causes battery-operated devices to empty out too fast. RAM devices are large and thus use a lot of power, so they don’t operate well as mobile devices….
