Can MMS Live Up To The Hype?

from the we'd-all-like-to-know dept

In the past, I’ve expressed some skepticism towards all the hype around Multimedia Messaging Services (MMS) that all the wireless carriers are suddenly talking about. In case you don’t follow this stuff (which is probably safer for your mental health), MMS is the “next step” following the ability for people to send text messages back and forth on their phone. It will let them send photos and other such “multimedia” back and forth from their mobile phones. The Economist takes a look at all the hype to see what chance they think MMS has. Basically, they come to the safe conclusion, saying that there’s a chance that MMS will be quite successful, but it probably won’t be accepted as quickly and as widely as some of the mobile phone carriers believe it will be.
