Mobile commerce is nowadays a continuously growing area, driving the need for advances in both the network characteristics and infrastructure, as well as in the available mobile devices used. The same need requires the development of quality software applications to facilitate and service m-commerce activities. This paper focuses on aspects of software quality for m-commerce services and applications, and proposes a set of quality characteristics and attributes to take into consideration during development. These quality characteristics are integrated during the analysis and engineering phases of the MobE process, which is a revised version of the spiral software process used in web engineering. The efficacy of the proposed approach in a real scenario is discussed.
