Motorola's Seamless Mobility: Neither Seamless Nor Mobile
from the let's-try-again,-folks dept
We mentioned the non-surprising, non-groundbreaking nature of Motorola’s expected announcement concerning a WiFi-enabled mobile phone last week when the company conveniently leaked the info they’d first announced a year and a half ago. Now, after pumping up the PR efforts, it seems that everyone is writing about this WiFi-cellular phone, without bothering to look at the details. However, looking at those details make the phone appear… not that interesting. It’s really a very limited device that can only be used with special 802.11a hardware. So, don’t think you’ll be using the phone at Wi-Fi hotspots any time soon. This is really just a gimmick to try to sell a new mobile phone to business users.
