Abstract A three-layer system module was designed to collect, process and represent the spatial, temporal, behavioral and personal context data of a mobile phone user. A context-aware application called xTolk was prototyped in Python on the Symbian S60 platform. XTolk collects the real-time location of the mobile phone user, assesses his physical behavior, estimates the travelling time for recorded routes, identifies the present Bluetooth devices and utilizes the Nokia Mobile Web Server to host a web page displaying the context data to an authorized public. According to performance and usability tests, xTolk successfully combines different context data and exploits time-correlations; improvements for more scalable data structure and easier user interface are outlined for the future development. A small survey evaluated users' interests on existing and potential functions of xTolk.
