Abstract

The usage of cordless/mobile telephones is becoming more and more important in the business environment as well as in private use. This paper discusses a proposed arrangement for improving such "communications on the move." PROBLEM(S) TO BE SOLVED A disadvantage of using cordless/mobile tele- phones whilst on the move is the problem of how to store the information, e.g. telephone numbers, appointment dates, price information etc., that a caller receives during the call. Such calls on his/her cordless/mobile telephone are typically away from his/her desk, e.g. in the car, where a pen and paper are not readily at hand.
