I-Mode: A Primer is the first book to hit the English market on this fast-growing wireless technology. This book includes an explanation of I-mode; it's history, technology, features and services available, and discussion of how it is being used, followed by a developer's guide to show how to begin building I-Mode applications. The book also includes some case studies illustrating various implementations including what has worked and what has not. Readers will gain a very clear picture of both the hardware and software involved with this very successful implementation of a mobile phone-based Internet service, the cultural milieu that it occurred in, and how to develop for I-mode and the mobile Internet. Specific coverage includes: exploring handsets, deployment, 3G network plans, packet-switching, CHTML and programming I-Applis, the I-Mode version of Java.
