Research/paper/insights on Use of mobile technology by Professionals on the move


I'm currently working for an internal paper for my organization.

I need to collect research material on usage of mobile/technology to meet user needs, specifically of professionals that are constantly on the move. I'm also looking for content on behavioural and motivations for such professionals.

Any relative links or cues in this direction will be a great help.

Looking forward for more enriching information.

R: Good examples of airlines websites


Obviously I tend to like www.alitalia.com booking process :)

I would suggest www.aircanada.com (great booking form design), www.ba.com , www.finnair.com , www.continental.com among the airlines web sites.

www.kayak.com among meta search engines.

I think that the product page is the hardest challenge to a designer due to huge amount of ever-changing rules in airlines pricing structure. For that reason it can be hard to hide all that complexity to web user and at the same time leaving him in control.

To sort or not to sort

I'm reviewing designs for a search feature. My question is regarding the
search results...the design has the results coming back in a table/grid
format. Columns contain Title/Description, Subtype/Date, and File Type.

I initially was reviewing the wireframes for consistency w/ the
application this feature will be integrated with, and not necessarily at
the context of use of this feature. I came back w/ a recommendation to
include sortability on the results table.

titles for education programs (a survey)

I created a 2-question survey to help us come up with a program title for
our interaction design masters degree we are creating.
For many reasons, we've decided for now, that "Interaction Design" is not
the right term.

Sketching with PowerPoint? Was: How is MSdoingPrototyping?

LG> I would argue in favour of whiteboard over paper for evolving
> sketches: easier to make changes as you sketch.

Whiteboards are excellent (+) for collaborative dynamic design sessions &
presentational environment, but awkward (-) when trying to capture the
content or transfer it to another platform. Smartboard does both transfer
and communicate (+) --- but at a price (-). Neither whiteboard nor
SmartBoard are particularly mobile (-).

All postal service apps look and do the same (No major difference)


a customer (major postal service) wants to develop apps for their major B2B-, minor B2B- and B2C customers.

These applications (both online and mobile) should help its users with the tracking of packages etc but also provide a user experience that may enable them to be the leading postal service.
