The iij Top Ten Upcoming Mobile Innovation Books

Surprisingly, the mobile category gave us the opposite problem to our usual one: this time we were not quite as inundated with contenders

We excluded those which included the leading mobile phone brand names and their technologies in their titles from the shortlist, which made selecting candidates harder and the list a lot shorter.
