Wireless Web's promises have been unkept in U.S.
Posted: 01-Dec-2000 [Source: MSNBC]

[Even early adopters are reported to be taking a wait and see attitude.]

by Andrea Peterson and Nicole Harris -- "The U.S. wireless industry is going to need more than NTT DoCoMo Inc.'s cute cartoon characters to persuade customers in this part of the world to use its new mobile services.

"The hype around wireless is deafening: Consumers, the ads promise, can get stock quotes, weather updates, news and sports scores anytime, anywhere, through their tiny phones. They never need be cut off from e-mail. They can shop from the back seat of a taxi or check their horoscope while waiting at the doctor's office. By 2003, 61 million Americans will use Internet-enabled mobile devices and will spend $9.3 billion on 'm-commerce,' or mobile-commerce, transactions, according to optimistic projections from International Data Corp.
