Abstract

A study was conducted to investigate business implications of mobile Internet on e-commerce. Three large-scale surveys were conducted in Korea to identify the effects of the characteristics of the mobile Internet on business users. The business implications of mobile Internet were compared with that of stationary Internet. The divergence of these implications were analyzed according to the characteristics of mobile Internet systems. The characteristics of the mobile Internet were understood from three different perspectives, such as user, environment, and system. The user's perspective revealed that mobile Internet devices were more personal and individual in comparison with stationary Internet devices. The system perspective revealed that most of the mobile Internet systems had a lower level of available resources as compared with those of stationary Internet.
