Next week is sure to bring a bevy of announcements
from new handset models - both humans
- and new, up-n-coming technology like ZigBee
. We'll be blogging
about all the goodies from Spain next week, so keep your browser or RSS reader ready. It's going to be a wild
With that said, some of the neater pre-released or pre-announced products include Cicero's wVoIP
(now, which letters are
capitalized?), a very slick wireless VoIP system for carriers. If you thing Vonage
is a mold-breaker, the firms that step up to the plate early and offer VoIP using the airwaves (and WiFi/WiMax airwaves
at that) are going to hit homerun after homerun. When you can take your wVoIP handset to any public or municipal hotspot
and have it auto-login and be ready to make/take voice calls - that will be a mind-blower for many of us (and
worrisome for telcos and cellular carriers). UMA is a decent first stab at this kind of mobility thinking I think (to
many thinks there).
More neat news seems to be on the plate from Macromedia
, now part of Adobe Systems. With Flash
being the global standard for online low and high-bandwidth web animation and visual engagement, what have they got in
store for mobile devices? The same kind of engagement you can get from regular web content on a PC? Let's hope so.
Macromedia ought to have some neat stuff in store for next week.
