Wireless Data Will Change The World
from the if-we-ever-get-it dept
Here’s an article about a speech given by Cingular’s CEO at iWireless World where he says that wireless data will be like color television – in that it will change lives and everyone will need to get it. That may be true, but it’s not going to happen the way all the wireless carriers are setting up their offerings these days. Charging ridiculous fees without offering compelling services has so far gotten wireless data offerings off to quite the slow start. Changing lives is wonderful – but they might want to focus on providing something that customers want at a reasonable price first. Changing lives can come later.
