Fifth Annual IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications Workshops (PerComW'07) | IEEE COMPUTER SOC | Published : 2007


In this paper we discuss some issues arising from our implementation and evaluation of two systems that enable mobile phone users to identify common address book contacts. These systems were implemented using Bluetooth and NFC. Here we discuss development and deployment issues, users' perceptions and preferences, and suggest promising future research directions. © 2007 IEEE.
