"PDAs, Internet phones, web pads -- wireless is here in a big way. But just because potential customers have ""unplugged"" themselves doesn’t mean you can’t reach them. The best news is, you don’t need a lot of computer expertise to capitalize on the snowballing mobile commerce trend.

The Get-Started Guide to M-Commerce is a nontechnical, easy-to-use introduction that takes you and your company through the strategic, technical, and marketing processes crucial to transforming your business into a mobile-market success story. From deciding whether or not to “go mobile” to the do’s and don’ts of implementing m-commerce technology, this accessible guide offers a reader-friendly overview of issues like:

• Evaluating multiple m-commerce options

• Adapting HTML for the possibilities and limitations of mobile device displays

• Creating HDTML and WAP pages

• Guaranteeing secure transactions and customer privacy

and many more, including how to shift to wireless internal networking, and how to advertise your business to customers on the move."
