As a variety of ICT4D devices becomes pervasive, easy access to minutes of meetings can help work groups better
communicate ideas and information.To explore this idea further, interviews were carried out to find out how members of a work and
research group share these meeting notes. It became apparent that introducing a mobile-based system in which members will have
access to minutes and other ancillary data without the need for the internet and a computer would be valuable.
Computers, cell phones and instant messaging are integral parts of our lives today.Hence the idea to design NotePhones, a
minutes-sharing system with a lightweight process, an interface, and hardware that distinguish it from previous systems.
This minute sharing application has been designed to run on even inexpensive windows cell phones and other personal digital devices.
It is hoped that the experience with using NotePhones will facilitate and promote the sharing of minutes for various groups like
meetings, conferences and classes.
