Mobile wireless phones with Ultra high speed Internet connection promises
a lot, are we there yet?
Imagine flipping open your mobile wireless phone and being able to
check the balance on your bank account, finding the latest scores of your
favorite sports team, if you're on a diet find out what your daily calorie
intake is, find out that your tofu lasagna is only a 600 calorie lunch, download
the hippest ringtone, find out which space station is about to fly over your
home city, and finally find a great restaurant that you and a friend can
The chief executive of eBay, Meg Whitman says, "Window into the possibilities
of what might happen when high-speed broadband services are widely adopted
in other places too". More and more cellular customers will want to be listening
to streaming music on their cellular wireless phone. An innovative
company called Amp'D mobile wireless has leased bundles of services from
Verizon wireless. In no time soon, the 18-year-old to 35 year old market
will be able to bundle what media they would want on their cellular wireless
phones before it's shipped to their home. They will be able to select
version of their favorite sitcom, a new ring tone, games they would like
play on their Amp'd mobile phone.
A country where three quarters of the population owns cellular wireless
phones is Korea. Back in the 60s, there was one television for every
300 people in that country. Look how far technology has influenced Koreans.
In fact, if you are a Korean couple looking for an apartment, a sign will
display on the bottom of the for rent sign showing the Internet connection
speed for that particular apartment block. This is very important for many
young Korean couples and can be a deciding factor whether or not they rent
that particular apartment.
New cellular technology is so close, but when you get there expect to pay
The Ministry of information and communication or MIC in Korea says that people
will be able a surf the Internet while they're traveling in their vehicle
at 60 kph. This service is called WiBro. MIC has leased the following three
Korean telecom companies: SK telecom,KT and Hanaro to be able to offer high-speed
wireless Internet access. You're probably asking what does this have to do
with North Americans? There will come a time where your cellular wireless
phone will be able to read the radiofrequency identification tags, the bar
code that you see on every single item in a grocery store. Imagine having
a MIC cellular wireless phone that will be able to read the expiry date of:
milk, cheese, yogurt, fresh meats, baked goods, and seafood at your local
grocery store. Imagine your MIC cellular wireless phone being able to pick
up a signal from an advertisement which would ask you to download a preview
of a brand new movie. You never thought that your cellular wireless phone
could do so many things did you? The predicted success of this wireless Internet
service is overwhelming. WiBro is estimating that there will be over 9 million
new subscribers between now and 2011.
The promise of watching DVD videos on your Windows Smart wireless phone
Already many Japanese commuters are watching video on their mobiles while
commuting long distances from their homes to their work on the subway. Well
if you own a Windows Smart wireless phone, you can convert a new DVD movie
on your computer to watch it on your Windows mobile device. No matter how
old you are, folks of every generation enjoy movies of all kinds. I don't
know about you, but I am a Film Festival junkie. When the Vancouver film
festival come in to town, I purchase the Visa Gold Express ticket allowing
me to sneak into a movie 5 minutes before the curtains roll. There are 5-10
seats reserved in every theater for Visa Gold express pass holders. The most
popular and well received film Festival movies are later turned to DVDs and
that is what I look forward to watching. A very popular software called Pocket
DVD studio 3.5 allows you to convert any DVD movie you watch at home to the
following formats:wmv,avi,mpg,mpeg,pm,rmvb,tivo2go. What's nice is that you
won't have to spend an entire afternoon converting only one movie. Diane
Dumas, an editor at Pocket PC took five hours to convert a DVD movie to Windows
media video format. However, using the pocket DVD studio 3.5, she was able
to convert her DVD movie in less than one hour.
What happens after you convert it ?
1. Save the DVD you converted either on a storage card or your desktop hard
2. Synchronize the converted DVD to your Windows mobile device using ActiveSync
3. Now sit back at your favorite WiFi hotspot, lazyboy chair or park and
watch your DVD movie on your smart wireless phone
Another exciting development that's happening in Spain right now is a service
called Sim pay. What is Sim pay?
This service already exist in Spain and has the ability to use your cellular
wireless phone to make mobile payments easier. The goal of
Sim pay which is also a nonprofit organization is to have the entire network
of European cellular users, all 70 million of them be able to select on their
cellular wireless phone, "buying with Sim pay". An equivalent Sim Pay service
can be adapted to United States. Pay pal now has more than 60 million account
holders in the world. Perhaps pay pal will look at this model and take note.
What is the real-life application of Sim pay? If you travel frequently
to Seoul, the capital of Korea, you may stumble upon a experimental café
where you can order an Asian version of cappuccino and be able to pay for
it with your cell wireless phone. In fact you may not even have to interact
with a human being, you simply order your to cappuccinos on your cellular
wireless phone screen and t hen pay electronically and receive
your receipt of electronically as well. But how does the cappuccino taste
prepared by a Korean robot?
