Mobile computing technology is developing rapidly due to the advantages of information access through mobile devices and the need to retrieve information at remote locations. Improved storage and processing capability of mobile handheld devices and qualitative data services of mobile networks enabled read write transactions, possible in mobile devices. So mobile transactions obtain or retrieve information from a storage device either in connected or disconnected mode. Thus, it is expected to improve data availability while a disconnection. This paper illustrates a comparative study of mobile transaction models with their capabilities to support the execution of transaction in connected/disconnected mode and the transaction properties.
