Figure 2-1. The layers of the mobile ecosystem

Figure 2-1. The layers of the mobile ecosystem talks about Operators, Networks and *Aggregators* before Devices (among other things). The subsequent pages that describe each layer has no reference on *Aggregators* leaving the reader confused in terms of what is the contribution of an *Aggregator*. This has no reference in the provided index either. Please clarify your stance on the nuances of *Aggregators* Regards, Vishy +91-9790964229

Paras 3-5

The population numbers are out of date. Obviously this is an ongoing problem for this book, but for example: global population is up to 6.8 billion now; population of china I just heard yesterday is 1.7 billion, and I believe the US is up to 350 million. Would be worth doing a little research to update these for the next printing.

Safari Books Online 1234 Doctypes (not sure of page number, reading the book on Safari)

The doctype recommended for Class B devices appears to contain a typo: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.0//EN" ""> If the doctype is 'Mobile 1.0', the end string should be 'xhtml-mobile10.dtd' not 'xhtml-mobile12.dtd. as so: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.0//EN" ""> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.1//EN" ""> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.2//EN" "">
