Using IT in mobile settings differs from using IT in stationary settings. Thus, the strong influence of stationary computing in mobile computing, which can be observed, is unfortunate. Based on empirical studies of mobile work, this paper suggests a model of “IT use in mobile settings.” Environment and modality are used to explain the particularities of the mobile setting. Environment is the physical and social surroundings; modality is the fundamental patterns of motion. The purpose of the… 
A comprehensive model incorporating mobile context to design for mobile use
TLDR
The theory and practice of this study has resulted in a structured method of noting context and mobility in the requirements elicitation process and a design model to highlight the pertinent concepts and aspects of design that require consideration and incorporation into the skeleton of solutions for mobile systems.
M-learning as a paradigm of a new forms in education
Mobile technologies are a future in e-learning technologies. The paper presents the details of using mobile devices and wireless technologies that could be used for m-learning in education and
Moving from stationary to mobile supporting services in a medical environment
TLDR
The study shows that the current stationary system does not efficiently support the time critical and mobile work that is performed at the hospital ward, and the working environment would be improved by supporting the mobile workers with mobile technology.
Accentuated Factors of Handheld Computing
TLDR
A tentative analytical framework capturing factors accentuated in mobile IS design is synthesized based on criteria of completeness, distinctiveness, and simplicity and develops towards a theoretical contribution as theory for describing handheld computing from a designer’s perspective.
Mobile Tracking on Patient Progress(m-TOPP)
TLDR
The report concludes that the working environment would be improved by supporting the mobile workers with mobile technology, by allowing doctors to track the patient’s conditions more efficiently and easily.
MobileMarket The Social Advertisement Network
TLDR
The thesis introduces a case study where a secondhand advertisement service for mobile phones (MobileMarket) was developed and evaluated, and major findings are synthesized in a taxonomy for mobile services, a set of design guidelines for mobile developments, as well as recommendations and requirements necessary in order to produce successful social mobile applications.
A First Empirical Study of Direct Combination in a Ubiquitous Environment
TLDR
The principle of Direct Combination is summarized, and analytical arguments are presented that predict that DC can reduce the amount of search required by the user.
Adopting Mobile Internet? Findings from a Study on Mobile Internet Services Using a User Centred Perspective
In this master thesis we investigate Mobile Internet with the help of a user perspective and discuss the problems of Mobile Internet today. As the Internet revolution evolves into the Mobile Internet
Developing Mobile Tracking Applications for Patient Treatment
TLDR
This paper presents a study performed using the mobile application for storing and following up patients status, and concludes that the working environment would be improved by supporting the mobile workers with mobile technology.

TLDR
The paper proposes a framework for adaptation which provides applications with runtime support for quality of service negotiation, monitoring, and notification and describes the design and implementation of the framework of adaptation as a part of the mobile computing environment.
Walking away from the desktop computer: distributed collaboration and mobility in a product design team
TLDR
A study of a spatially distributed product design team shows that most members are rarely at their individual desks, and implications for technology design include portable and distributed computing resources, in particular, moving beyond individual workstation-centric CSCW applications.
