          Abstract

          Mobile internet technology is spreading day by day around the world. The importance of such technology relates to its ability to allow access to the internet any time or any place. Despite the progress made in the mobile internet field, there are still some difficulties in using it. Some of these difficulties are connected directly to the mobile usability issues such as the screen size, input method and font size. Other difficulties are related to the experience in using such technology. This research aims to find out the main boundaries and obstacles which limit the use of mobile handsets as an internet platform. The research aim extends to studying the effect of cultural issues on people’s use of the internet on a mobile phone. The research reported here is based on participants from the Hashemite Kingdome of Jordan.
