Throughout the book they anaylse the background developments, such as the licensing of new networks, the emergence of new data services and the technical evolution through TACS, GSM, UMTS and LTE as well as the development of text messaging and the integration of the mobile with the web. Alongside this, the authors explore the design and technical changes to the handsets, including the integration of cameras, the emergence of apps and the trend-setting influence of the iPhone.
