The technical complexity of mobile phones is continually increasing due to the introduction of new functions and technologies. The development organisations face an increasing challenge in making the products usable and useful. If for any reason an organisation does not apply usercentred design during the product development phase, the usability engineers may encounter problems in doing their daily work efficiently and effectively. A practical solution is to adapt usability engineering to the… Expand
