An RT tweaked me to this blog and it's a great one. Great content and makes you think touch and it's applications. The innovations are only just starting to emerge. One post also pointed me back the the Nokia Beta Labs and "experimental" versions. I must add some back to my N97 and N95.
It's actually amazing how fast education products… tests, knowledge, vocabulary are moving into or being adapted to mobile. Last week I noted a program in Bangladesh. Spice is adapting "china phones" for local conditions. With recent IMEI fears (must have by law now) 'indian' branded china phones (micromax, karbonn, spice) are likely to pick up the slack and the opportunity. At prices well below "name" brands (Sony, Nokia, LG, Samsung) they are poised to continue gaining share. Just another reason to buy the phone for your college bound kid. Right?
Most of us would smirk at the extra big speaker (boombox) that comes with it and yet "sound" has sold a lot of these phones, some with more than a dozen speakers built in.
Great article full of common sense. I don't need any convincing although the only way to move this forward today may be to start building new businesses from the ground up. I could fill up a huge blog post with quotes from it.
