Selling Data Is Different Than Selling Voice

In his latest Outlook 4Mobility, Andrew Seybold points out that US mobile operators seem confused about who they should be selling wireless data services to.

Show them how they can take advantage of wireless data services for their PDAs and laptops. Oh yeah, and make sure to be aggressive with the pricing.
