image of Internet for a Mobile Generation

This report on Internet for a Mobile Generation is the fourth in the "ITU Internet Reports" series (previously known as "Challenges to the Network"). The key issues addressed in this 2002 edition are: technologies and applications; demand, market structure and economic implications; regulatory and policy aspects. Material from individual country case studies provides valuable and informative insights and a Statistical Annex presents the latest information on the status of Internet developments worldwide.



Technologies and applications

Although for most users, the mobile Internet will primarily mean multimedia applications, delivered to handheld devices with colour screens, for the industry itself it is the progress in the underlying technology that is the most exciting aspect. Faster speeds and increasingly efficient use of spectrum allow data, text and video to be handled seamlessly alongside voice.
