First book ever written using mobile phone is published
Posted on 27-Jul-2007 12:10 | Tags Filed under: News



Italian author Robert Bernocco has published the world's first book written using a mobile phone. Bernocco published it on Lulu.com, an online marketplace for digital content.

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 is the English translation), 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 the 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.

Robert Bernocco works in the IT industry in Piedmont, northern Italy. He lives near Cuneo, Italy with his wife and son. His book is a science fiction novel set in the future.
