The wireless economy is expanding internationally, led by the popularity in mobile phones. We view the wireless economy as growing in three distinct, but inter–related areas: consumer transactions (mCommerce), enterprise solutions (mEnterprise); and, other services to individuals and organisations (mServices). This paper surveys the wireless landscape, specifically from a non–technologist’s perspective, while providing wide–ranging and contemporary examples of mobile applications in Australia.
