M-Commerce and Mobile Commerce Applications

Mobile commerce applications (m-commerce) is the buying and selling of goods and services through wireless solutions such as such as cellular phones, tablets and personal digital assistants (PDAs). M-commerce enables users to access the Internet without needing to find a place to plug in and search and buy goods and services. Increase in WAP enabled and smart phones, decreasing pricing of mobile data internet plans, and new technology wireless solutions such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and near field communication (NFC) are all paving the way for m-commerce to be accepted by an increasingly mobile workforce.

As content access over wireless devices is becoming faster, secure, and scalable, there is wide speculation that m-commerce will surpass wireline e-commerce as the method of choice for digital commerce transactions in the future and affect industries such as financial services, telecommunications, retail, and general services. The key trends are that mobile purchases are on the rise, devices and applications are dictating behaviors, virtual wallets are catching on, mobile coupons and barcodes are catching on more quickly, and m-commerce providers are increasingly addressing data security and user experience barriers.
