Now almost everyone in the developed world has a mobile phone and these have revolutionised how people communicate with each other and how people now live and work. This book seeks to identify and study some of the milestones in attitudes and technology that are leading to new methods of communicating, texting, gaming and messaging. These words even 10 years ago wouldn't have featured in the lexicon of mobile communication. The steep changes brought about by mobile communications have led the authors to contrast the past with today's world and to glimpse into the future.
Steve Hearnden, Telecommunications Consultant
This book presents a rich insight into how and why the mobile has become so important in today's society. It explores the strong emotional attachment that people have to these devices, and argues that it is people and not the technology that developers must put at the heart of future mobile offerings. A valuable book for industry and academics alike.
