Welcome to BlackBerry Development Fundamentals. I hope you enjoy reading
this book and keep it on your bookshelf for a long time. After working for
Research In Motion (RIM) and helping its customers understand their options
for building custom applications for the BlackBerry platform, I knew the time
was right for a book like this. Although the world is full of developers who know
how to build applications for desktop, server, and even mobile platforms, many
people building their first applications for BlackBerry just don’t know where to
GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications, originally Groupe Spécial Mobile), is a standard set developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) to describe technologies for second generation (2G) digital cellular networks. Developed as a replacement for first generation (1G) analog cellular networks, the GSM standard originally described a digital, circuit switched network optimized for full duplex voice telephony.
As stated in Chapter 1, Section 1.2, requirements for International Mobile Telecommunications-2000 (IMT-2000) include system ﬂexibility, economy and conditions on data transmission speed deﬁned in numerical terms. The minimum performance requirement in terms of transmission speed is 2 Mbit/s in an indoor environment, 384 kbit/s in a pedestrian mode and 144 kbit/s in a vehicle mode.
The Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) promotes the U.S. economy and public welfare by providing technical leadership for the Nation’s
measurement and standards infrastructure. ITL develops tests, test methods, reference data, proof of concept implementations, and technical analyses to advance the development and productive use of

SQL Server is a comprehensive, integrated, endtoend
data solution that empowers your
people by providing a more secure, reliable, and productive platform for enterprise data and
BI applications. SQL Server 2005 delivers powerful, familiar tools to IT professionals as well
as to information workers, reducing the complexity of creating, deploying, managing, and
using enterprise data and analytical applications on platforms ranging from mobile devices
to enterprise data systems.
Data fusion is a research area that is growing rapidly due to the fact that it provides
means for combining pieces of information coming from different sources/sensors, resulting
in ameliorated overall system performance (improved decision making, increased detection
capabilities, diminished number of false alarms, improved reliability in various situations at
hand) with respect to separate sensors/sources.
As multimedia-enabled mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets are becoming the day-to-day computing device of choice for users of all ages, everyone expects that all mobile multimedia applications and services should be as smooth and as high-quality as the desktop experience. The grand challenge in delivering multimedia to mobile devices using the Internet is to ensure the quality of experience that meets the users' expectations, within reasonable costs, while supporting heterogeneous platforms and wireless network conditions. ...
Spatial database management deals with the storage, indexing, and querying of data with spatial
features, such as location and geometric extent. The field emerged from Geographic Information
Systems (GIS) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) applications, from which it became apparent
that there is a need for the efficient management of large-scale spatial data. More recently, Location
Based Services (LBS) brought spatial data management needs to common users, who routinely run
spatial queries on their computers or mobile devices.
Migrants have various options for sending
remittances: money transfer companies (Western
Union, MoneyGram, etc.) or credit card
companies; regular mail service; financial transfers
through banks, credit unions or the various transfer
options offered by companies (e.g. supermarkets
or through mobile phones); informal channels such
as couriers, or more sophisticated channels such
as the ‘Hawala’ and ‘Hundi’ transfer systems;
hand-carried by migrants themselves.
Some organizations are deliberately using mobile money
to enhance their traditional offerings. For example, during a
recent drought in Niger, a set of randomly selected house-
holds received cash transfers via mobile money (Aker et al.
2011). In comparison with physical cash, this trial found
lower variable costs for senders, as well as lower costs for
recipients. Over the course of the crisis, recipient households
also enjoyed better diets and depleted fewer assets.
Insurance, credit, and savings services are now being
developed atop mature mobile money systems.
The need to search for complex and recurring patterns in database sequences is shared by many
applications. In this paper, we investigate the design and optimization of a query language capable
of expressing and supporting efﬁciently the search for complex sequential patterns in database
systems. Thus, we ﬁrst introduce SQL-TS, an extension of SQL to express these patterns, and then
we study howto optimize the queries for this language.We take the optimal text search algorithmof
Knuth, Morris and Pratt, and generalize it to handle complex queries on sequences.

Broadband Wireless Mobile (3G and 4G) will be the next key developments in wireless communications. Immense interest has been fuelled by large demand for high frequency utilisation as well as a large number of users requiring simultaneous multidimensional high data rate access for the applications of wireless mobile internet and e-commerce. Broadband wireless mobile extends the corporate LAN to common areas such as meeting rooms and enables in-building public wireless hotspots such as airport lounges to provide wireless portable computer connectivity...

The new digital radio system DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting, nowadays often
called Digital Radio) is a very innovative and universal multimedia broadcast system
which will replace the existing AM and FM audio broadcast services in many parts of
the world in the future. It was developed in the 1990s by the Eureka 147/DAB
project. DAB is very well suited for mobile reception and provides very high robustness
against multipath reception. It allows use of single frequency networks (SFNs)
for high frequency efficiency....
Generation Change in Cellular Systems
In Japan, mobile communications systems based on cellular technology have evolved, as illustrated in Figure 1.1. The ﬁrst-generation analog car phones were ﬁrst introduced in 1979, followed by the commercialization of the second-generation digital phones in 1993. Mobile phone subscribers have rapidly increased in number since then, owing to the liberation of terminal sales and continuous price reductions. In March 2000, the number of mobile phone subscribers outnumbered those of ﬁxed telephones.
