This book surveys some of the broader issues associated with the adoption & use of mobile communication, & explores developing areas of inquiry. Mobile communications are looked at in the context of other types of mediated interaction, demonstrating the uniqueness of this form of communication & how it is influencing the renegotiation of the social sphere.
The book considers how mobile communication has impacted on society and reflects on how it is used (& sometimes resented) in various public & private spaces. It provides an in-depth analysis of specific areas which complement our understanding of the phenomena including:
-The psychological dimensions of mobile communication (addiction, proclivity to be disturbed by others' use of the mobile phone),
-The linguistics of mobile communication, &
-The understanding of mobile communication's commercialisation.
A valuable addition to any researcher's or professional's reading material in the area of interaction of technology & society.
