IEEE Communications Magazine January 200854 GUEST EDITORIAL

Summary: IEEE Communications Magazine January 200854
he mobile Internet technology and its related applica-
tions and services have progressed greatly in the past
few years, and now we see many tiny terminals with integrated
multifunction chips in the market. However, at the same time
we observe a kind of separation between the technology
development and the common Internet applications cus-
tomers usually use. This had led to underutilization of mobile
device capabilities such as mobile video and mobile television
that come as part of new mobile devices. While for many peo-
ple using specific Internet applications would be more com-
fortable with large-screen desktops, the mobility freedom
provided by cellular and noncellular mobile technologies sug-
gest the development of closer connections to applications so
that users can receive most of their communications needs
from their mobile devices. The purpose of this Feature Topic
is to bring together a collection of research and development
on new applications for the mobile Internet that can make the
technology more appealing for wider use.
