A Framework for m-Commerce
Today's communications market is moving quickly toward the promise of communications, commerce, and content available anytime, anywhere, and on any device. Service providers are no longer simply network operators, but are evolving to become providers of rich, interactive media, productivity services, and retail experiences. Consumer expectations have also evolved to where the term wireless no longer implies just voice service, but rather represent a complex infrastructure to which one connects - in real time, from any place - to be informed, entertained, or engaged in visual or audio communication, or to buy goods and services. The constant exchange of value among the multitude of constituents is the pulse of this infrastructure, the underlying and measurable component of which is wireless commerce.
