The analysis of characteristic dimensions of the mobile‐communications system has been based in the interaction between technological performance (characteristics of the different generations of mobiles), cost for the user and value‐added. These dimensions allow for the positioning of all m‐communicators services into a morphological cube. The analysis of this cube shows that the area of high value‐added services with low pricing is yet to be developed by the industry, if 3‐G (broadband mobile telecommunications) is to develop as a successful innovation in the years to come.
