Abstract: The advent of computing systems has changed many aspects of our daily lives and routines; including the way we communicate, entertain, navigate, travel, study, generate knowledge, seek medical help, and relax. Initially, computer systems development was restricted to computer scientists. Computers have now become working instruments available to whoever has the means to acquire and use them, irrespective of social status, disability, geographical location, education level, and gender. Lately, there has been a significant re-valorisation and adaptation of computing devices, whether physically, electronically, or logically, which resulted in more user-friendly and innovative computing systems and interactive systems. This research project primarily intends to explore and examine user-experience (UX) dynamics regarding the relationship between humans and handheld computing systems, and, most importantly, concerning adult first-time users.
