The popularity of 3G networks in Australia and capped mobile phone plans is making mobiles more affordable and a more varied option than landline communications. Mobiles.com.au helps consumers to avoid getting ripped off by mobile phone companies by providing extensive information on the Australian mobiles market.

Mobiles have become such an important part of business and social life, yet so many people are unfamiliar with the extent of the technology. This site aims to help the average Australian to get their head around everything on offer for mobiles today.

Recently, a survey conducted in America by the International Date Corporation (IDC) of 1500 homes found that mobiles could become the primary home communications option due to increasing financial pressures. Many people who still hold landlines are only doing so due requirements for DSL (broadband internet) service, so the days of the landline being preferred to mobiles for communication could well and truly be over.

Online communication is also becoming more popular on mobiles, offering greater convenience and portability to previous methods of Internet access. The growing prevalence of 3G mobiles in Australia suggests that mobile phones could potentially be preferred even more than in the U.S. One factor that could be behind greater popularity is how commonplace text messaging has become within Australia.

With capped mobile phone plans providing people with hundreds and thousands of free text messages each month, it seems obvious why this method of communication is preferred to voice calls in Australia. As Internet usage on mobiles gains currency, however, email may once again reign as the dominant text-based communication option.

In the United States, many mobile phone carriers charge the receiver of a text message, making it somewhat impolite to use as a frequent source of communication. With Australia's tendency to quickly adopt new mobile technologies as they are released, and America's need for a low cost text-based communication option, both countries may experience a surge of mobile Internet use.

As mobiles are becoming ever more dominant, it is important to keep up to date with the latest information on mobile phones, which Mobiles.com.au provides.
