The Internet And Your Phone

from the does-anyone-really-need-it? dept

A good article that brings up some questions concerning whether or not anyone really wants the internet on their cell phone. I’ve been asking that for a while. While I do see some areas where it would be nice, I still don’t see it being that big a deal. Unfortunately, the article seems to base most of its conclusions on a lot of different current offerings – all of which suck. My question is whether or not people will even want any of these things once the offerings get better. Update: Of course, in some other areas it seems the WAP backlash backlash has begun. I’m not sure why this article claims WAP will succeed. It talks about some wireless applications, but doesn’t say why WAP needs to be the solution.
