Movies over cell phones not yet in focus

[Capturing the imagination--some innovative wireless companies are working to promote the possibilities of the technology. ]

by John Borland -- "A group of ambitious companies are looking to bring cell phone owners--just barely comfortable with surfing a wireless Web--into a whole new world of portable multimedia entertainment. "Yet in a market where simple text-based wireless Internet access is limited, companies' plans to play music or movies over wireless networks appear unrealistically futuristic, many skeptics say. Even supporters who speak of the technology's potential in glowing terms concede that U.S.-based companies have yet to figure out how exactly to make their dreams a reality.

"Analysts say that these companies are simply too much ahead of the technology curve. Technology adoption could be the largest hurdling block. Streaming companies must rely on giant network operators to carry the new multimedia material. Problem is, many wireless networks aren't yet up to the technological challenge, according to many analysts.
