Next time you are sitting on the bus bored, instead of playing games or sending a text message from next month you will be able to check your eBay account and bid on items.

Publisher Moonlight Mobile from next month will launch a new service called Mobile Auctions that will allow eBay users to check up and manage their eBay account from their mobile phone.

The software also promises to offer dynamically updated, real-time information directly on the user's handset however for the cost of a monthly subscription which is yet to be set.

The application will run on the Java platform making it accessible for all mobile phone users and has been specifically designed for the mobile phone rather than just trying to make the eBay interface work.

It will work on the USA, United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Austria, Israel and Belgium stores with more territories being added in the future.
