No 3G Support For Centrino Santa Rosa

2/22/2007
It looks like Intel has flip flopped on its earlier support for built-in 3G. Intel in September said it planned to offer support for both Wi-Fi and 3G HSDPA networks in the next-generation of the Centrino mobile notebook platform, code-named Santa Rosa. But the company has since reveresed that decision. So why no 3G?

Can Businesses Remove Carriers From Their Mobility Efforts?

2/21/2007
Let's admit it. You've thought about it before. Is it possible to remove carriers from the mobile enterprise equation? The promise of all-IP networks and better smartphones is that the role of carriers can be eliminated, or at least greatly reduced. Will this promised day ever arrive?

Learning To Speak The Same Language Of Mobility

2/19/2007
I have almost recovered from the insanity that was the 3GSM World Congress last week in Barcelona. Not only did my airline manage to lose my baggage on the flight home, I also caught a nasty case of the flu -- so much for constantly using hand sanitizer and taking large doses of Vitamin C. As I sat down to digest the week that was, I kept thinking about how differently the carrier and the enterprise IT worlds see mobility.

Who Is Afraid Of Mobile VoIP?

2/14/2007
Two years ago if you asked carriers about mobile VoIP -- the use of voice-over-IP services on cell phones -- they would ignore your question. There was an unwritten rule that mobile VoIP was taboo. Carriers seemed to be afraid that VoIP would disrupt their market they way it had affected the wireline telecom world. At this year's 3GSM, the carriers are finally talking about mobile VoIP, but they seem to be in denial about its potential.

Day 3 At 3GSM: Can I Party On Your Dime?

2/14/2007
We're rolling into the middle of day three here at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona. There are many things that make 3GSM my favorite wireless industry trade show. There is the charming Mediterranean location (the show is in Barcelona; in years past it was located on the French Riviera in Cannes). The endless glitz and glamour of big announcements. Plush booths, swag, and a more relaxed attitude than similar shows in the U.S. But, the best

Day 2 At 3GSM: The Wireless Industry Grows Up

2/13/2007
It is day two at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona and the crowds have swelled since yesterday. There are now 60,000 people congregated in the exhibition halls and the atmosphere is electric. Yesterday felt a little slow. The halls weren't that crowded and the pace was a little down. I half expected this show to disappoint based on yesterday's atmosphere. But, today it's a totally different story.

A group of international carriers including Vodafone, France Telecom, Telefonica, Deutsche Telekom, Hutchison Whampoa, Telecom Italia and U.S. wireless carrier Cingular Wireless this weekend said they would work together to develop a mobile search engine they hope will keep Google and Yahoo from dominating the emerging mobile search market. That's all great, but does anyone actually use search on their
