Editorial Reviews

Review

"…an important source of information for marketing professionals seeking an edge in selling next-generation wireless hardware and software." (Microwaves & RF Newsletter, April 21, 2005)

“…this book could easily become a ‘killer book’ that excites and motivates you to devise successful new ideas for mobile application…”(IEE Communication Engineer, June/July 2005)

From the Back Cover

"There is no other book I've come across that offers this breadth of knowledge and makes you that excited about the possibilities in this fast paced market. Next Generation Wireless Applications is written in a very accessible way and packed full of useful insights from the author reflecting his extensive experience in this field.
I recommend it to everyone in the industry as a must-read book"
— Shomila Malik, Product Manager O2

3G, GPRS, WAP, MMS, J2EE, J2ME, XML, SMIL, MLP, A-GPS…. What is the big picture? How may we piece these technologies together?

In Next Generation Wireless Applications, Paul Golding bridges the gap between the technologies available today and the services available tomorrow. What is possible with existing technology and techniques? What will ‘mobility’ mean to tomorrow’s customers and how may we begin to create exciting new services today? Rather than covering each technology in detail the author explores their symbiotic potential, explains how, when used in association, the sum may be greater than the parts. He encourages the reader to become a ‘smart integrator’, to become aware of the vast array of possibilities, to think of the opportunities, and to start creating the future.

This book will revolutionise your thinking on:

  • Mobile Service Delivery Platforms
  • Content networks
  • Mobile and smart devices
  • Service integration
  • Human-Computer interaction and user interfaces

Professional engineers and application developers working in the ‘Wireless’ sector have had to embrace a veritable explosion of technologies in moving from the 2G voice-only world to the Internet-connected 3G universe. This book demonstrates how they might be connected - not in a proscriptive manner - but in an inspiring and motivational way that aims to provoke discussion and new ideas.

Written for strategists, managers, consultants and engineers, this book is also a practitioner’s toolkit giving up-to-date information on accurate location-finding, interesting Java variants, smarter devices, useful protocols and many other mega-components.

"The author has pulled together the disparate corners of wireless to show a meaningful map for the rest of us.  This latest work sets Paul apart as a great analyst of monetizing wireless."
Chris Hare, Digit Wireless

This provides timely and cogent analysis and in depth knowledge of today's Web 2.0 and Mobile 2.0 environment. If your a CEO, CFO, COO, Architect or Developer at any company in the wireless space, you need this to survive. I am sending copies to all my key associates this is a MUST READ. The first chapter inspired me and the following 15 chapters back it up, with excellent detail and through knowledge from a highly experienced insider. If you want your people to 'GET IT' while all your competitors languish in ignorance then get this book.

Whenever an author spends half his words telling you what he's going to tell you later, you know he doesn't have much to tell you. I saw a new update is out on this one and perhaps it's been improved but I think most people would be best served reading product descriptions and reviews in the Apple App Store.

By far, the best wireless book I have read.

It's key features are - it's independence, scope and practical insights.

Very detailed but also an enjoyable read.

I especially liked it because it helped me clarify many concepts independently (i.e. you can read the vendor's documents but they are biased by definition). Have no hesitation in recommending it
