A location-based transactional download service of contextualized multimedia content for mobile clients


This paper explores the new opportunities offered by the emerging technologies of the last generation of mobile phones. Thanks to features like GPS facilities installed in the mobile terminals new value added services can be developed to offer the user the more suitable multimedia content depending on parameters like user's location and preferences. We describe the development of a contextualized and personalized multimedia content delivery platform using transactional communications for mobile terminals. Furthermore an actual test route has been made to proof the successful working of the platform. © 2010 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
