This book surveys some of the broader issues associated with the adoption & use of mobile communication, & explores developing areas of inquiry. Mobile communications are looked at in the context of other types of mediated interaction, demonstrating the uniqueness of this form of communication & how it is influencing the renegotiation of the social sphere. The book considers how mobile communication has impacted on society and reflects on how it is used (& sometimes resented) in various public & private spaces. It provides an in-depth analysis of specific areas which complement our understanding of the phenomena, including:-The psychological dimensions of mobile communication (addiction, propensity to be disturbed by others’ use of the mobile phone),-The linguistics of mobile communication, &-The understanding of mobile communication’s commercialization.
