EFFICIENT INFORMATION RETRIEVAL FROM HANDHELD TERMINALS WITH WIRELESS DIGITAL PHONE INTERFACE - Personalized information access on mobile phones and PDAs

Hans Weghorn

Abstract

Currently, the success of data services used through digital mobile phone networks is very limited. Different reasons can be identified for this: At first, the costs for data connections through these wireless networks are extremely high. Secondly, the user handling of the physically constrained handheld terminals appears as very uncomfortable. Here, a concept for customer-centred information services is proposed, which meets the limited capabilities of the terminal devices. An adequate UI is presumed to make the use of data services on mobile digital phones as also on PDAs more convenient. Furthermore, the information access speed is increased and the costs for the information retrieval are reduced by the described concept.
