Mobile computing and commerce has advanced substantially in scope and use largely through new advances in ICT, affordable computer power and miniaturisation of chips. Mobile devices have become important not only in local but also in global communication. They have become part of our lives especially for data exchange, commerce, business and leisure time. However, literature in information systems rarely addresses the particulars of mobile computing from pure ICT view. This special issue encourages studies on technical, social and theoretical issues in mobile computing that will interest both practitioners and researchers.
