IMPRESSED: MMS really kicked me
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:37 CET under 09 - Thoughts

I'm just working on some MMS (Mobile Multimedia Messaging Service) stuff (including the tactel MMS client preview for Pocket PCs) and I got so many thoughts about MMS I have to share with you.

First of all, I'm thinking about MMS for more than a year now, about the possibilities and kind of services and every day I think about it I get more ideas. The point is, that until now and I think for the most of you - it's theory only. We've read about it and we saw nice concepts but now - latest with the MMS service launch of Vodafone Germany - it becomes reality.

THOUGHT: What do you use your Pocket PC for?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 02:31 CET under 09 - Thoughts

As we've heard last week, Compaq sold more than 2 million iPAQs and also the sales figures of the other Pocket PCs increased, compared to the previous years. Well, I had some discussions with other Pocket PC users, what they use their Pocket PCs for and what they expect from their Pocket PCs.
What I've seen in the past when I met my fellow Pocket PC enthusiasts and MVP colleagues, it seems that the use of Pocket PCs in Europe and America differentiates?

Why do I use a Pocket PC and for what does I use it?

THOUGHT: Will i-Mode do it better than WAP or where are the differences?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:48 CET under 09 - Thoughts

One of the hypes I saw on CeBIT was for sure the i-Mode presentation from E-Plus. Yes, I saw many people scrolling on the mobile phones, surfing the wireless web and had fun. So will i-Mode hold the promise, WAP wasn't able to hold?
Hey, just wait a minute... What is i-Mode and its key success factors (at least in Japan but maybe also in Germany/Europe) and why I still believe in WAP.

First of all i-Mode is color and that's the nice and most important part of it. i-Mode can display animated GIFs, also not bad. I-Mode is able to provides tones, that's great. WAP was (until the launch of the Ericsson T68) at least on mobile phone displayed on a green/black display, that's boring. WAP was able to format texts including tables but most handset vendors didn't supported it. WAP was slow and inconvenient as it was launched to late/early (to late because SMS as the bearer services might be the better decision than CSD and GPRS wasn't available. CSD was the worst decision!).WAP was secure but who the hell needs WTLS Class 1 - 3 while a standard SSL connectivity would be enough for the regular consumer services? WAP was completely wrong defined by the WAP Forum and didn't found its role at the operators.

Where was the faults and not and who is responsible for the faults?
