The mobile payment services markets are currently under transition with a history of numerous tried and failed solutions, and a future of promising but yet uncertain possibilities with potential new technology innovations. At this point of the development, we take a look at the current state of the mobile payment services market from a literature review perspective. We review prior literature on mobile payments, analyze the various factors that impact mobile payment services markets, and suggest directions for future research in this still emerging field. To facilitate the analysis of literature, we propose a framework of four contingency and five competitive force factors, and organize the mobile payment research under the proposed framework. Consumer perspective of mobile payments as well as technical security and trust are best covered by contemporary research. The impacts of social and cultural factors on mobile payments, as well as comparisons between mobile and traditional payment services are entirely uninvestigated issues. Most of the factors outlined by the framework have been addressed by exploratory and early phase studies. Â© 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

In an electronic-society the production of texts is increasingly enabled or mediated through ICT. Existing typographic research seems to focus on isolated, rule-formulating studies that often have little impact on typographic practice. Our proposed framework aims to overcome these problems, by providing as complete and holistic explanation as possible of influences on a typographic quality in an emerging e-society. Five field studies were conducted in various locations in Sydney in 2005. The participants photographed examples of typographic text that they considered meaningful to their experiences. These were then used in subsequent photo-elicitation interviews. The results of data analysis supported by the literature led to the formation of a framework that synthesizes the influences on the quality of typographic text perceived by the audience. These include the typographic text's form and content, its immediate context, as well as the audience's own personal background and the purpose behind their reading activity. The framework aims to be generic and apply to texts in all various forms, including in print but also text presented on computer screens e-commerce, e-government and other Internet applications supporting the electronic-society

n this paper the authors report on the results of a survey aimed at ascertaining the opinions of contemporary university students on the use of mobile devices as learning tools. Four hundred and forty two postgraduate and undergraduate students from an Australian University completed the online survey. The authors analyzed both quantitative and qualitative data focusing on the ramifications for m-learning practices in university environments. Mobile technology acceptance factors are used to highlight important findings from the survey.

Fieldwork has long been identified as providing students undertaking professional studies with a means of implementing theory into a real world context. In recent years some educators, particularly in the health sciences, have introduced mobile devices to support students' fieldwork learning. In many ways there is a natural link between fieldwork and mobile technology. In this paper we report on a trial to introduce mobile support into the study of information systems in the field. The experience showed that mobile devices can assist students collect data in richer, multimedia formats and make subsequent classroom presentations of their field study much more interesting. However, it also revealed certain usage and deployment issues with the mobile devices themselves which have implications for device selection and educational design.

This paper aims to inform readers of suggested directions for researching how mobile technology can enhance active student learning. These directions are informed by an online survey of our students in early 2007 and a contemporary literature search. We present the findings of our search of global best-practice in mlearning, gaps in the current literature are identified and five directions are suggested for 2007 mlearning research and development. We start discussing how to investigate these suggested directions.

Mobile Commerce promises to deliver e-commerce services directly into the consumers' hands - anytime, anywhere - using wireless technologies. Applying mobile access to computing creates both tremendous commercial opportunities and complexity, which will make computing globally pervasive and ubiquitous. Customers prefer a choice in the channels through which they do business and the same applies to transactions as well. This paper reports on a project which explored the current state of mobile financial transactions globally using Bluetooth as an enabling technology.
