GSM, GPRS and EDGE Performance: Evolution Toward 3G/UMTS The introduction of GERAN (GSM EDGE Radio Access Network) will enable the existing GSM and IS-136 Radio Access Networks, based on digital 2nd Generation TDMA technologies, to evolve towards real 3rd Generation Radio Access Networks in terms of radio spectral efficiency, peak data throughput and support for 3rd Generation services - Publisher: John Wiley & Sons; 1st edition (June 15, 2002).

Wireless Java for Symbian Devices Developed by a consortium of several major mobile-telephone manufacturers and licensed by nearly all the others, the Symbian operating system seems likely to be the OS running on the next generation of mobile communications devices. Wireless Java for Symbian Devices explains why the Java programming language is similarly likely to appeal to programmers having the task of providing services to users of Symbian devices.

Mathematics for 3D Game Programming & Computer Graphics - Although the book is geared toward applications in game development, many of the topics appeal to general interests in 3D graphics. It starts at a fairly basic level in areas such as vector geometry and linear algebra, and then progresses to more advanced topics in 3D programming such as illumination and visibility determination. Particular attention is given to derivations of key results, ensuring that the reader is not forced to endure gaps in the theory.

Micro Java(TM) Game Development - Explores the design of games for mobile and handheld devices in Java 2 micro edition (J2ME), or micro Java. Written for experienced programmers, the guide first reviews the wireless application protocol (WAP) and standard messaging system (SMS), and introduces the mobile information device profile (MIDP). The bulk of the book describes techniques for creating graphics, sounds, animation, and multiplayer connections.

Wireless Game Development in C/C++ With Brew - Designed for game programmers interested in developing mobile phone applications, Wireless Game Development in C/C++ with BREW uses QUALCOMM's BREW development environment to illustrate a variety of techniques in the field of wireless phone games. From the basics of the BREW SDK? and bitmap graphics to wireless networking and applet distribution, this book takes you through the fundamentals of the API, including graphics, sound, and input, and brings it all together with a complete example of a working game.

Bluetooth Application Developer's Guide - Bluetooth Developer's Guide to Embedded Applications will provide developers with an advanced guide to the wireless frequencies governing the Bluetooth protocol. This book will give readers all of the insight, tool, and techniques necessary to write embedded Bluetooth applications. Written for advanced programmers, this book this book will be invaluable for the Bluetooth developer.

Jeff Duntemann's Drive-By Wi-Fi Guide This book consists of many short, focused topic features that answer all the typical questions newcomers ask, such as "how does this work? how do I do it?" without losing the reader or a sense of humor. Duntemann explains the complex security issues clearly, and shows how users can protect themselves from both obvious and non-obvious threats. He expands the blizzard of WiFi acronyms and touches on the human element in the WiFi movement, including hacker threats and WiFi weirdness.
