Subject: RE: MobileLBSList: Article slamming wireless web
Date:  10/30/2000 08:40:01 AM
From:  Shubhro.Banerjee@Techspan.com

The fundamental issue of the wireless web : low real estate, even lower
bandwidth and a legacy behavioral pattern from using a computing device to
access and POST pages and forms are the quintessential problems with
wireless. Once the embedding of even limited simple instruction sets on the
device (and the phone)that are etched to a particular API becomes pervasive
the "irritation" with wireless web will be over.

Could we do RPC's over the phone/ PDA that tunnel thru existing enterprise
firewalls and kickoff remote services by some kind of dynamic
discovery...could be the panacea for wireless baiters..

Thanks

Interesting article at WebReview.com:
http://webreview.com/pub/2000/10/27/feature/index03.html

Despite protestations from the wireless crowd, what matters at the end of
the day is the perception of the general public. It's clear that many
carriers (and software companies) are going back to the drawing board to
rethink their marketing and product strategies. Any thoughts on what's
needed to help the usability of the wireless web? I've got my own opinions
but I already have a platform to voice those on :-)
