Wireless ecommerce is very interesting in wireless LANs, where the
localizer aspect comes into play. Proximity alert, matches, automatic
negotiations, geographical searches, and the like.

Also, cellphones are there, and are being busily fused with PDAs and
GPS. Due to price dynamics you've got excellent leverage if you deploy
wireless ecommerce on cellphones as infrastructure. Beats even Palm
