Jennifer discusses legacy technologies leading up to mobile phone 3rd generation services and draws up on staggering statistics that indicate a change toward mobile content delivery over PC content delivery. She illustrates the impact mobiles are making as the new delivery platform of choice; right now there are twice as many mobile phones in the world as internet connections, and SMS is the most heavily transferred data type in the world.
Jennifer introduces the concept of native mobile applications; applications that are mobile phone dependent, and identifies video as the ‘killer app’ for the mobile platform in 2008. In addition to defining user demographics by behaviour rather than age, Jennifer shows us how 3G social and geographic networking is already working in the real world, and offers tips on how to develop more user friendly mobile applications.
