”It’s just easier with the phone” – a diary study of Internet access from cell phones
RISE, Swedish ICT, SICS, Software and Systems Engineering Laboratory.
2009 (English)Conference paper, (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

We conducted a diary study of how 19 experienced users access Internet from cell phones. Our findings show that participants often chose the cell phone to access the Internet even though they had access to a computer, and the most common location for Internet access from the phone was the home. Reasons for choosing the phone over the computer were speed, convenience and a desire to use the phone. The phone is kept close and is always on which makes it convenient to use. The traditional motivation for mobile services ”finding out something about where you are” only accounts for 15% of the material.
