Descripción
This contribution aims at analyzing context-awareness from a commercial point of view, studying how the utilization of context descriptors and features in mobile services has evolved during the period 2003-2008. The analysis is based on the information collected during a Technology Watch activity; this methodology has provided us with a large database of mobile services, built from monthly updates of mobile novelties and commercial launches. Services in the database have firstly been categorized regarding their functionalities, in order to get the big picture of the mobile ecosystem in this period of time. Afterwards, we have identified a list of descriptors (personal, physical or activity related) and features (related to resources discovery, management and communications and also to advances HCIs) which are usually identified in context-aware applications and systems prototypes. The use of these descriptors and features has been evaluated for each service and some trends have been detected. Our general conclusion is that nowadays few commercial mobile services can be considered ¿context-aware¿, although isolated features (mainly related to personalization) are perceived in many applications. Due to their functionalities, location aware services and mobile social networks are leading the use of context parameters.
