Abstract

Nokia Research Center conducted a usability test for two XHTML Mobile Profile (MP) applications: a news application and an auction application. The goal of the test was to find out how XHTML MP components should and should not be used in order to build a usable mobile application. To compare different user interface solutions, both applications were designed in three different user interface styles. The findings on user performance, perception, and preference were used to make Mobile Application Development Guidelines.
