22 WHAT IS MOBILE? Why is MOBILITY Important? Mobility is important for individuals because ACCESS and ENGAGEMENT anywhere anytime is the expectation. We see this demonstrated in social networking, to banking, from work to education, airlines, and everywhere in-between. Individuals want information and want to contribute information at a moments notice.
23 Within one year, some 45% of U.S. higher education students will own and access the Internet from handheld devices. – EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research
