Description & Coverage
Description:

M-Commerce: Global Experiences and Perspectives focuses on the emerging growth of mobile telecommunications and mobile commerce around the world. To provide a global perspective, this book describes approaches from three major regions of the world - North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific – and highlights several countries from each region.

These countries are significant because of their large existing base of mobile telecom users, their future potential, their innovativeness in mobile telecom technology development, and their leadership in launching new mobile applications. M-Commerce: Global Experiences and Perspectives contains chapters from authors of many countries, and while each chapter examines a specific country in-depth, all the chapters use a common integrative framework called the CLIP (communications, locatability, information provision, and payment processing) application-theoretical framework. These four core functions underlie various mobile telecommunications services offered worldwide. This conceptual framework facilitates a deeper understanding of the effective business strategies for m-commerce.

Reviews and Testimonials

This important book explores mobile business in various regions of the world through the lens of a leading group of researchers and practitioners. It is imperative to learn about what others have done and are doing in terms of m-business for two reasons. First, some regions have progressed but have they taken the right path? Second, we can learn a great deal from each region in terms of business models, revenue sharing, and portfolio of mobile business services; since each region operates with autonomy. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to all, to benchmark their own positions, and prepare for the mobile business challenge.

– Professor Jan Damsgaard, Copenhagen Business School, Research Director of Mobiconomy and DREAMS Mobile Business Projects

Excellent overview of the state of mobile services around the world. Clearly shows innovation differences between regions and describes future direction of industry.

– Ramneek Bhasin, CEO, Mobio Networks, USA

We have been very fortunate in obtaining the cooperation of country chapter" authors who not only understand the complexities of mobile communications technologies and business models, but also have dep insights into the business and consumer environments of the countries featured."
