I'm looking for a book to survey the m-commerce field. One book which I found is:
M-Business: The Race to Mobility
by Ravi Kalakota, Marcia Robinson
Is there anything else out there which
gives a more technical overview of this
market ?
Thanks
Pho

I'm sure an Amazon.com search would turn up more. However, I'd be skeptical of most books on this topic. During the summer of 2000, wireless was hot. Publishers seemed eager to put out any book on this topic. Many of those books had little content. I'm sure many more are out of date, because the books generally predicted exponential growth in the field, whereas wireless commerce is realy at least another 18 months away. The economical slowdown of 2000 and subsequent economic damage from 9/11 were also unforeseen in many, if not all, of those books.
Caveat emptor.
