I attended a Samsung Technology Event where it was said that the Internet and Mobile are converging even faster than forecast. By 2010, 400million Internet enabled mobile devices will be shipped. Around 70% of these will have Cambridge University technology at their heart with an ARM processor. I wish I had won a Samsung Notebook at the end of the afternoon; they look really good. I never was interested in the top prize in the draw of a very thin, 42″ LED flat screen with all the goodies – I am not a bad looser!
A blog post A Big Week for the Mobile Web by Fred Wilson supports this with everyone looking forward to the launch of the Droid. People are moving to wi-fi as the mobile carriers are being overloaded giving slow download rates. I guess if you do not have an iPhone then you will not appreciate the importance of good wi-fi.
Lots of great business opportunities in the mobile Internet space and you need a good business plan.
PS Met some love ladies this afternoon picking sloes to make sloe gin. Great crop this year so I am told.
PPS Wish they had wanted the name Yomp for the new phone. I am sure that I would have done a deal….. Maybe the next phone in this space!
