First Book Written On Mobile Phone Published

Now here’s one creative thing to do with a mobile phone when you have a lot of time on your hands…

Italian author Robert Bernocco has amazed the literary world by publishing the world’s first book written using a mobile phone. Bernocco published it on Lulu.com.

Bernocco took advantage of his idle time while commuting to and from work by train, writing his 384-page science fiction novel, Compagni di Viaggo (Fellow Travelers), on his Nokia 6630 phone, using the phone’s T9 typing system.

By dividing his manuscript into short paragraphs, Mr. Bernocco wrote his novel in perfect Italian, not your typical text-message shorthand, and saved the paragraphs on his mobile phone. Mr. Bernocco then downloaded them onto his home computer for proofreading and editing. The book took him 17 weeks to write.

Amazing, I can’t believe how much patience this guy has to write a whole book using a mobile phone; I barely use text messages because it’s annoying, so imagine having to go through this. Bravo.
