Such applications are able to take advantage of a new paradigm of mobility for data services, with the ability to sensitize to location, time and personal features. Evidence suggests that New Zealand is becoming one of the more innovative adopters of wireless data communications. Already there are many recent examples of companies that have adopted wireless solutions and employed them for business benefit. This study examines the state-of-the-art of wireless data services in New Zealand. Through a combination of case study and survey it examines the strategic impact of wireless applications in a variety of industries. The paper rounds off with a summary and conclusions on the future direction of such applications.
