Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is not much literature in the area of mobile user interface design. This book is not written completely by Christian Lindholm and Turkka Keinonen, though; this book has several authors from Nokia.
It is an exciting and good-looking book on the history and background of the extremely successful Nokia mobile phone design. It is very down-to-earth and visionary at the same time.
If you work in the area of user interface design for mobile devices, this is a must-read. There are many new ideas in this book and I learnt much from it.

The form like Nokia expose their innovations, the form so simple of attracting the reader the simplicity of their designs makes of this book of necessary utility to understand the reasons for which the cellular telephony will dominate and it will be imposed in the short term market.
