Few American Want Push-To-Talk?

Uh oh. As the various wireless carriers in the US are gearing up to take on Nextel and their “push-to-talk-high-ARPU-monopoly” a new study says that most US users have no interest in push-to-talk. Of course, what people say and what they actually do can often be two very different things. This could be a case where certain people need to see others using the technology before they jump in. However, with the amount of hype surrounding push-to-talk, you would think that the US carriers would have done a smidgen of market research on their own before investing so heavily in push-to-talk technology.
