Netbooks lead the way on how we’ll be using our mobile phones in the near future

As per surveys, Netbooks are being used primarily for business,
entertainment and communication and it's being seen as a secondary
device. I've covered that in more detail here:

Since it's not replacing the laptop, I think what’s basically missing
is a phone added to the mix.

Date based search on Mobile web

Hi all,
I was just wondering if anyone knew good examples of date search on
mobile web.Specifically talking about html driven stuff, not iphone

The difficultly with date based searches on mobile, I am realising is
error prevention (in the absence of relying on ajax) and fatigue at
the prospect of interacting with multiple and very long pull menus.

I have a bunch of quick links to commonly used date ranges - ie, this
weekend, but I also need to provide the flexibility to allow users to
choose any singe date in the future or a date range.

Layar app - What do you all think this portends for IxD?

Hey all -

Saw a very brief demo of a *reality* browser on TV last week via Brink on the Science Channel (which btw also had an excellent demo by Bill Buxton & the MS Office Labs 2019 vision--posted elsewhere on this forum).

Basically it seems to be mobile browser (served as an app) which in real time mashes-up digital content (information) and physical context---it's called Layar and seems to be live in the Netherlands.

Very, very cool stuff was curious to know if there were any thoughts or if anyone has had first hand experience with something like this.

mobile development applications

Does anyone have any experience using, or being involved in a project
that uses, any of the latest-generation mobile development

I am referring to tools such as

* AMP Studio

* Cross-platform for Blackberry, Iphone, Symbian, etc.
* Managment of deployment

They share some qualities with tools like Dashcode, OpenKa

Mobile Search Models

Hi all,

I've been seriously thinking a lot about mobile search models and am
looking to crowd source interesting examples to check out.

Also, if there are any articles / papers you would recommend on the
topic, that would be great.

At the moment, it is my view to simplify this as much as possible.
I'm considering in the case that a user has multiple search criteria
that they input one and build on that query rather than complex
advanced searches.

Number of results displayed per page on mobile device

Has anyone come across an example of search results which aren't
based on the "base-10" method of displaying results per page?

For example, I've got a situation where a legacy product is
currently displaying 9 results per page and the reasons I've
gathered are:

1) Each result is associated with a number on the keypad (press 1 to
go to 1st result on the page, 2 for the 2nd result, etc.), but the
number 0 is being reserved as a keypad shortcut for another

2) Businesses make up the core of our search and they don't want to
be associated with 0 even though they're displayed

Experiences in minutes

Fascinating post from Jan Chipchase
relating to the coming of the billionth Iphone download but more
importantly the trend in mobile applications of an expected
installed life measured in minutes not days. Do we design for it or
to combat it?
