Similar to telephony in the 19th century, mobile telephony was first adopted by business people for business-oriented activities. Small and medium-sized entrepreneurs are one of the major user groups. Their use habits have thus contributed to the development of the mobile phone which in turn has transformed the business practice of its users.
