This joint minitrack on Mobile Commerce and Value Services is focused on mobile business models and value services. Foresight scenarios indicated already in the late 1990es that mobile commerce would become a mainstream business with the growing number of mobile phones in the world; the estimate now is that we will reach 3 billion mobile phones by 2008. The reasoning is simple: with a global technology platform and growing numbers of developed mobile services, mobile commerce will become a huge industry. The future development of mobile technology will rely on usable and valuable mobile services and the use of mobile services will be an integral part of the revenues to be generated by third generation mobile phones.
