Abstract: The potential and impacts of mobile phones are context specific and multi-directional, for example: voter mobilization and street gatherings and political activity in South Korea; mobiles acting as weapons of self-defence for women, allowing risk-taking in public spaces; use of mobiles by female foreign domestic workers for connection and empowerment beyond their employers reach. This special issue focuses on papers stemming from the 2010 International Communication Association’s Mobiles Preconference which brought international and Asian scholars together. Seven articles showcase scholarship in innovation and the social impact of mobile telephony in Australia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and the United States.
