Introduction

Choice of problem * I have decided to look at the mobile phone market for my presentation. My presentation will show how over a relatively short period of time mobiles have become an important item in a lot of peoples lives. What makes the different phones so appealing, especially to teenagers. I will show the good things about owning one and also the disadvantages, this will also include the dangers of owning a mobile phone, such as "mugging". * The reason for choosing this presentation is that most teenagers I know own a mobile phone. This will enable me to investigate what makes them so popular, how the mobile phone companies are encouraging their products to be bought and what new features the latest models have, the prices charged, different models and health risks. * My presentation will also include information about how the mobile phone companies are encouraging youngsters to buy by adding games, putting newer, smaller models onto the market and which are attractive to the target group & why. * I will also include a questionnaire designed to show what attracts people into buying a mobile phone. The questionnaire will be targeted for my peer group at school and will be designed to find out what influences, either external/internal persuades the purchase of a phone. * From the questionnaire I will be able to plot the influences on buying decisions such as advertising, price, network, peer pressure etc. * I will also include some exhaustive research into the data of the current mobile phone companies pricing structures. Target Audience My target audience will be teenagers but I am sure their parents would be interested as well. My presentation will recognise that teenagers have a keen interest in obtaining and knowing about the latest models available, what the different phones cost and once bought the different prices charged for calls and text messages. ...read more.

The first was to type up the HTML source on my web site in FrontPage Express and to do my presentation on the Web and the second way was to use Word and PowerPoint. After thinking about my target audience and the information I wanted to show I decided to go for PowerPoint. I have used this programme before and have had success with it. I knew that I wanted to do a slide show and knew PowerPoint has special applications and because I am aiming at a young audience I knew that PowerPoint would help me making my presentation interesting as well as easy to follow I have started of by typing all the information that I plan to put into my presentation into Word. I could have used notepad but I find Word a more powerful programme with lots more facilities available. I was able to type quickly, use fonts, tables, borders and shading. I wanted to include a database and I have chosen Access as this will be able to do the job and I will be able to retrieve information I need quickly and efficiently and to do any queries my audience may have. I wanted to include a flowchart in my presentation and first of all looked at Visio. I thought this to be a good programme and it would have done what I wanted but as I was already working in PowerPoint I thought it would save me time if I used the Flowchart contained in this programme. I am using the same programmes at home and at school and when I update my work I e-mail myself the changes in the form of an attachment. Hardware I am using my personal computer at school together with my home computer. They are both Pentium based computers with CD-ROM, sound card and Internet access. The operating system I am using is Windows 95 with a 64 KB RAM. ...read more.
