1. What You Should Be Teaching Your
Students about Mobile Business

2. "Bovée and Thill are the only authors who explain and illustrate
in every chapter how mobile is revolutionizing business
“Surprisingly, although we’re in the midst of a mobile
revolution, no other business communication authors cover
mobile business communication, which should tell you

3. Don’t assume that colleagues and customers
around the world use the same communication
tools you use. For example, although mobile phone

invading someone’s privacy with your phone’s camera without permission,
texting during meals, allowing incoming calls during meetings, are all
disrespectful choices that will reflect negatively on you.

system on iPhones, raise an important etiquette

users, but they can create distractions and annoyances
for other people. As with other public behaviors, think
about the affect you have on others before using these

in a variety of social and business situations.
9. WebEx Mobile gives you mobile access to one of the
world’s most popular online meeting platforms that
enables world-wide collaboration.

based on your location—such as activating silent mode when you arrive at
your office to assure proper etiquette.
