If someone were to visit your Website via a cell phone, would they be able to view the site correctly? What if they were using a Palm Pilot to see your page, or some other kind of high tech gadget? The wireless Web is growing quickly, and content developers need to know how to create solutions that address the variety of screen sizes, transfer speeds, and the various demands of individual mobile Web users. In "The Wireless Web Usability Handbook", readers learn how to develop content that is truly usable on all wireless devices. All of the key technologies, such as WAP/WML, compact HTML, HDML/HDTP, and Voice XML are covered in detail in order to teach developers how to use these tools effectively. In addition, comprehensive usability solutions for a large variety of wireless devices are explained in detail. Emulation software is included on the companion CD-ROM, allowing readers to test their content before going to market. The result is a complete resource for content developers creating for the vast array of wireless devices to ensure their content is accessible and usable to all users. The text: provides practical information on designing for wireless devices; explains and teaches the methodology of evaluating usability for wireless content; demonstrates how to use emulation software to prototype and test usability content; teaches how to use the current technologies including WML/WAP, Compact HTML, Bluetooth, Jini, JavaPhone, VoiceXML, SMS, I-mode, and JavaTV; and includes case studies of existing wireless content developers. The companion CD-ROM includes emulation software, sample Website designs with an analysis of good and bad features; and free usability testing software.
