Emails for small screens
June 27th, 2005

It’s pretty infuriating to receive a long email on a cellphone or PDA with a small screen. But Motorola has come up with an answer – software that automatically creates a synopsis of the long text.

The new summarising software first discards sentences that are less than 5 words or more than 50. Then it looks for sentences containing words that frequently crop up in the text, or which the owner has added to a preference list.

Finally it sifts sentences which contain telltale words and phrases like “all in all”, “so to sum up” and “for example”. The few remaining sentences that fit all the criteria are pulled from the long message, stitched together and shown on screen.
