1. A mobile device comprising:
an edge, the edge including at least a first side and a second side, the second side being opposite the first side;
a first touch sensor of a plurality of touch sensors, the first touch sensor being a side touch sensor to detect contact with the first side of the mobile device;
a second touch sensor of the plurality of touch sensors, the second touch sensor being a side touch sensor to detect contact with the second side of the mobile device;
one or more motion detection elements to generate motion data representing motion of the mobile device through space over a period of time;
a buffer for the storage of the motion data; and
a gesture recognition module to interpret the motion data stored in the buffer;
wherein the mobile device is to begin the storage of the motion data for a first gesture in the buffer upon detection of a start of gesture data event at a first time, the mobile device being in a first position in space at the first time, the start of gesture data event including contact with at least the first touch sensor and the second touch sensor to indicate a grasp of the mobile device with either the right hand or the left hand of a user, and the mobile device is to halt at a second time the storage of motion data for the first gesture upon the detection of an end of gesture data event, the mobile device being in a second position in space at the second time, the end of gesture event including a release of contact with at least one of the first touch sensor or the second touch sensor;
wherein motion of the mobile device includes movement of the mobile device in any direction through space from the first position to the second position;
wherein interpretation of the motion data includes the gesture recognition module to normalize the motion data for the first gesture as motion data for a gesture performed by moving the mobile device through space from the first position to the second position with the mobile device being grasped with either the left hand or the right hand of the user depending on whether the left hand or right hand is detected grasping the mobile device in the start of gesture data event.
