Your wireless future

Phones that get you into concerts, tell co-workers not to call now - or even display which friends are at a show. The next phase of the mobile revolution is about to begin.

"But this, too, will soon change. Three of the four major U.S. carriers switched on high-speed 3G networks in 2005, and Wi-Fi hotspots continue to proliferate, with places like Philadelphia and San Francisco planning to create citywide Wi-Fi networks.

"We're connected in our homes. The next step is to be connected wherever we are," says Derek Kerton of wireless consultancy the Kerton Group."  (Source: Carlo Longino, Business 2.0 Magazine)
