Basically, people admitted they don’t really know what the killer app for 3G will be, though, they think things like photo messaging and location based services look somewhat promising. They’re also afraid that 3G will be hyped to death the same way WAP was. Of course, at this point, it’s a little too late for most of the carriers to turn back in their hype campaigns.
