Predicting The Future (continued)
From John Battelle's post on mobile search (not his 2006 predictions):
Watch mobile this year, I swear, some interesting things are happening. I saw something this week that blew my mind, but can't write about it for a little while.
Mobile is a platform that the current web giants don't control. The carriers control it today, but are going to lose that control slowly and surely over the next several years.
This is a place where someone new can come in and shake things up. Wifi is an important piece of the puzzle (as is wimax) but so are new software and services for mobile devices.
I agree with John, 2006 is going to be a very interesting year for mobile.
