After acquiring the UMTS license under the corporate name Andala in November 2000 with an offer of €3.2 billion, H3G's target is to become the first Multi-Media Mobile operator in Italy. Having been founded by key players in the worldwide telecom arena, such as Hutchinson and Tiscali, H3G aims to establish a foundation for the new face of communication. For the needs of development of the 3G user interface, H3G chose IconMedialab Milan as partner. One Arhel consultant was engaged in the project.
In November 2000, H3C is to become the first Multi-Media Mobile operator in Italy. During the 2001, our Italian partner (Icon MediaLab) was involved in prototyping interfaces for 3rd generation mobile phones. Their HCI (Human Computer Interaction) team found reliable support in our team, for realizing their ideas.
Technical support for prototyping and usability testing was the role for our team. Main part of the project was to develop prototype for the mobile service: 'Find a theater'. Work included programming the logic and the visualization of the functionalities: (menu browsing, selecting options, personalization...).
Client's request was that produced output must be in XHTML, so than other parties can transform it easily with XSLT. PHP (object oriented level) is used for dynamically creating XHTML. Strong graphic background was also needed.
