Mobile computing poses significant new challenges due the disparity of the environments in which it may be deployed and the difficulties in realizing effective software solutions within the computational constraints of the average mobile device. Likewise, enabling seamless and intuitive interaction is a process fraught with difficulty. Embedding intelligence into the mobile application or the physical environment as articulated by the AmI vision is one potential strategy that software engineers could adopt. In this paper, some pertinent issues concerning the deployment of intelligent agents on mobile devices for certain interaction paradigms are discussed and illustrated in the context of an m-commerce application.
