A Development Process for Advanced User Interfaces of Wireless Mobile Devices

  • Aaron Marcus
Part of the Computer Communications and Networks book series (CCN)


This chapter describes a process for developing user interfaces for advanced mobile wireless devices, based on research, contextual analysis, and prototyping. The process is based on research conducted by Aaron Marcus and Associates, Inc. (AM+A). AM+A designed future wireless mobile device user interface concepts for Samsung Electronics (Korea) that combined the functions of mobile telephones and personal digital assistants (PDAs). AM+A first researched emerging technology, social/cultural/business concepts, and advanced user-interface design. Then, AM+A provided to Samsung a suite of ideas for usable, useful wireless mobile devices to incorporate into future products.
