U.S. Not Dying For Wireless (Or Maybe They Are…)

from the doing-just-fine-watching,-thanks dept

With all the hype about how the US is missing out on the wireless revolution, the NY Times points out that we might not be missing very much. Yes, people buy cans of soda via their cell phones in Helsinki. Yes, in Korea you can follow your ovulation cycles. But, is anyone making any money? Many U.S. firms are willing to wait and see what happens. They’re trying not to get drawn in on the same sort of hype that is destroying dot coms left and right. Of course, that didn’t stop them from spending billions of dollars on spectrum, but I guess old habits die hard.
