Abstract

Mobile video in 3G network phones enables the creation of personal video clips as well as viewing contents made by others, making video calls with friends and family and following different types of media contents, such as news and other TV broadcasts (in real time). As the mobile phone has become capable of handling a variety of different media contents, it has become a medium used for various forms of personal, community and mass communication. Furthermore, traditional boundaries of mass communication have been blurred, as different mass communication contents are increasingly available to personal mobile applications. The core question lies in user appropriation: for what purposes do the users wish to use the mobile video feature in the context of daily life? This paper examines the appropriation and the significance of mobile video content and mobile TV in the everyday life contexts of users. The data for the research is based on two empirical research projects including field tests on mobile visual services, especially on mobile video calls and mobile news services in Finland in 2005 - 2006.
