As mobile sites (m-sites) are introduced a very relevant question to ask is “How should these sites be different from the typical websites developed for desktop PCs?” This paper presents an initial, exploratory attempt to address some issues related to m-sites. This evaluation of sites was conducted using wireless PDAs in a WLAN environment. The results indicated that regular sites and m-sites differed significantly in perceived search engine functionality. The evaluated m-sites showed little differences across various industries. A discussion of these results as well as recommendations for managers and academic researchers are provided.
