A step-by-step guide on how to design Web sites and information applications to take advantage of the explosive growth in mobile device access

Designing Wireless Information ServicesWith the dramatic increase in wireless access to the Internet, it's critical that your information is accessible to mobile users. This is the first book that clearly explains how to design user interfaces for mobile applications and Web sites that work in the mobile environment. Author Johan Hjelm cuts to the chase by showing how existing Web sites can be redesigned to work with wireless devices, cellular phones, and PDAs, and take advantage of the special properties of the current and next generation mobile networks.
