Arne, that's great news for Pocket PC (& Tablet PC!) users who have been patiently waiting for 3G... Based on your real-life experience with 3G, I am interested to know if the 3G technology (which you're working with) in its current state is still challenging for the end-user to adopt - e.g. are device settings difficult to configure, are there interoperability issues between devices and telco equipment from different manufacturers? etc.
I understand that you may not be able to delve into specifics, but general comments would be great. I'm from Malaysia, and our own local mobile telco providers have been promising 3G for a long time. So far, however, nothing has materialised. In fact, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has stressed to providers that there will be penalties for delays in 3G implementation "to make sure that they did not make empty promises during their bid submission,".
Basicaly, I'd like to learn more about 3G deployment and testing experiences (not marketing talk & promises, but the real nitty gritty) - from the providers perspective and from the end-users perspective. To understand why it has taken so long. Why has 3G the technology taken so long to mature? Or is it still not mature?
I've researched Bluetooth and I understand the complexities behind the scenes - now, I'd like to learn more about 3G. Many people have said "3G is dead" now that there is WiMax, just like certain people have said that "Bluetooth is dead" because of Wi-Fi (though we know that this is not true!).
Also, what are your thoughts about this news article? - "3G signals can cause nausea, headache" @ http://star-techcentral.com...
Well, this is a long (& an exciting subject!)... maybe we should start an discussion thread in the Forums? Cheers!
