    Abstract

    There has been a rapid and extensive uptake of mobile phones in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, regardless of mobile phone coverage or Internet access (Brady et al., 2008; Featherstone, 2011). Kral (2014, p. 6f) stated “people, predominantly young people, [are] buying laptops, mobile phones and even iPads or Tablets”. Recent figures indicate Australia wide, 70% of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people own a smartphone, and in remote communities 43% of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people own a smartphone (MIR, 2014). What fosters and nurtures this embracing of mobile technologies?
