This study contributes to the understanding of adoption of multifunctional wireless handheld devices and will help to envision new strategies for developing and marketing the devices. Previous research has focused on wireless handheld devices as single-function devices and has applied adoption and acceptance theories to explain adoption processes without the recognition of the levels of adoption processes. This paper will examine the following research questions: (1) how do the factors revealed by previous research impact four functions (tasks) of wireless handheld devices and (2) how do innovation diffusion theory and task-technology fit explain adoption processes? This paper outlines multifunctional adoption processes of wireless handheld devices and helps practitioners set new strategies. We believe that this paper will be of great interest to both academics and practitioners who study wireless handheld devices.
