Abstract
Mobile phone has evolved from a voice-only medium into multimedia.
Unfortunately, studies on mobile phones thus far have been unable to keep pace
with developments in technology and service marketing. As a result, there are
some biased tendencies in present day social and academic discourses on mobile
phones. First, the marketing discourses are placing a strong emphasis on the
technical developments of the mobile media. Second, there is a strong tendency in
academic discourse to regard mobile phones as simply 'phones', namely a
mono-medium. Thus, existing marketing and academic discourses have been
incapable of providing a thorough understanding on the substance of the mobile
phone. Only by understanding the media characteristics of the mobile phones can
we understand its substance. In this context, I will attempt to approach this
medium in three venues: interface, mobile-text, and modalities.
