The idea of writing this book emerged from the last book Elad coauthored called AdvancED lex 3. In the previous book, Elad wrote an 80-page chapter about mobile devices. Before that book was printed, the team realized that writing a chapter covering Flash Lite may not be suitable for a Flex 3 book, and the chapter was dropped. After a conversation with Clay Andres in Manhattan about trends, technology, Flex, and mobile, Elad and Clay decided that they should do the extraordinary and combine Flash Lite with emerging technologies, taking into account the release of Flash Player 10 on mobile...

Government information is often not mobile friendly;
increasing accessibility (especially of local information) is
one way libraries can serve diverse users. Some libraries
are providing services of this type in a desktop-oriented
way already. This chapter discusses tools that can be used
to make such sites more mobile friendly, including ones
requiring little funds or technical background.
The most obvious way to leverage patrons’ mobile
devices is to put content on the Web.
Dreamweaver is the most powerful and industry-leading web design software that utilizes innovative web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery for web and mobile development. These technologies have radically reconfigured the process of designing the web content and function in the widest possible range of browsing environments ranging from desktops to mobile devices.
Step-by-step instructions carefully walk you through the most common HTML5 mobile development tasks.
Quizzes and Exercises at the end of each chapter help you test your knowledge.
By the Way notes present interesting information related to the discussion.

IN RECENT YEARS, MOBILE DEVICES have gained popularity due to lower costs, small and sleek
sizes, and the capability to act as a computer with you at all times. The increased use of mobile
devices has created new issues for developers and network administrators, such as how to secure
the devices, how to deal with increases in bandwidth, and how to make existing codebases usable
on a device ten times smaller than it was designed for.
This book discusses these problems and many more, with a detailed overview of how to get started
developing for a variety of mobile devices.
It seems an obvious question to ask at the beginning of an HLSL and shader book; what
exactly is a shader? It’s a small program or algorithm written explicitly to run on a
computer Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). It provides a way for developers to extend
the rendering capabilities of the GPU. Any program that works closely with graphics will
benefit from using shaders. The video game industry spins off custom shaders by the
thousands, they are as vital to game projects as business entity classes are to line of

Then, the book covers AIR applications for multiple screens and includes topics such as:
While media buzz regularly circulates around iPhone and Android, Nokia still leads the pack in terms of world market share. Symbian, for instance, remains the most widely used mobile operating system. With Nokia's open development platform, the opportunities available for mobile developers to target this vastly popular operating system are abundant and clear.
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.
