    M-Commerce is concerned with using a handheld mobile terminal such as a PDA or a Smart phone, connecting with wireless networks and conducting transactions. Considering the fact that there are so many different MCommerce services and products on the market, it is necessary to build a framework to organize them so that some conceptual structures can be discovered and new products and services may be compared meaningfully with existing ones along some uniform dimensions. In order to build such a framework, we propose three useful dimensions. This integrated three-dimensional framework will help us to better understand the development status of current mobile Commerce services and products and further help designers, developers, and researcher to strategize and effectively implement new mobile commerce applications (Upkar Varshney an Ron Vetter 2001). Furthermore, this framework will form the basis for a more comprehensive framework to be developed. We hope this framework will be useful in the investigation of related issues such as the impact and adoption of M-Commerce on organizations. The issue of what criteria will be used in choosing a good framework and its dimensions is also discussed in this paper.
