In early days the mobile phones are considered to perform only telecommunication operation. This scenario of mobile phones as communication devices changed with the emergence of a new class of mobile devices called the smart phones. These smart phones in addition to being used as a communication device are capable of doing things that a computer does. In recent times the smart phone are becoming more and more powerful in both computing and storage aspects. The data generated by the smart phone provide a means to get new knowledge about various aspects like usage, movement of the user etc. This paper provides an introduction to Mobile Data Mining and its types.
