2002 Will Be a Good Year for Devices

Two more studies suggest that 2002 is a critical year for wireless devices. We’ll see sales of integrated devices take off due to new devices and handsets sales will recover as people upgrade to new networks. This makes sense in theory, but neither study takes into account that carriers have done a piss-poor job of releasing compelling applications at reasonable prices for their new networks. Subscribers won’t upgrade till they can afford and understand the benefits.
