Research – The Mobile Communication Society
July 11, 2005
Smartmobs has a link to an interesting research document (PDF) on:
"The Mobile Communication Society – A cross-cultural analysis of available evidence on the social uses of wireless communication technology"
This research report was prepared for the International Workshop on Wireless Communication Policies and Prospects: A Global Perspective, held at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, October 8th and 9th 2004.
The 300+ page document is quite comprehensive and has a global perspective on the use of the mobile phone. It covers details on the major mobile geographies of the planet and the social impacts effecting the use of these types of communication.
Understanding how mobile communications effect your local geography is only part of the equation. Observing how we are fast approaching a global interactive social & communication environment is the other part.
This 300 odd page piece of research is a great doorway to our world’s mobile networks and is worth the read.
