Stifling Innovation Not Working Out Well for Cellular Providers
Business Week's Blogspotting has some interesting evidence of the failure of the closed network model for cellular service (Mobile Internet: a Story of Stagnation).
What can we gather from this? The mobile industry, which has been breathlessly awaiting revenue growth from mobile data, has utterly failed to provide Internet handsets and services worth our time and money. Significantly, the one area of growth--wireless email--developed largely on services and handsets that came from outside the phone industry, from Research in Motion's Blackberrys and PalmOne's Treo.
Gee, I wonder if they opened up their networks, someone more clever than the cellular service companies might come up with the killer app for mobile data?
