Richard Kipkemoi Ronoh

Given the significant impact the wireless technologies provided to date, not many research can be found conducted in understanding the pattern of wireless use and adoption among various cohorts of the Kenyan population particularly those of university students. This research conducted in order to find out about the pattern of wireless technologies adoption and use among University students in Kenya. Subsequently, this study is expected to establish an understanding of the usage patterns based on the adoption/appropriation of technology perspective. This study should provide a very important contribution to the understanding of university students and their mobile phone use behavior. At the same time, this study can also assist in policy development of wireless phone application among university students and allows for respective authority to re-think of how to exploit the technology to benefit the youth for the purpose of learning and motivation. In addition, the findings may also contribute to the modeling of mobile phone use as a strategy to match mobile phone design to users technological needs and expectations.
