Killer mobile app over horizon
Posted: 28-Jul-2001 [Source:]

[Financial service applications looking to be a major force in mobile development.]

by Stephen Bell -- "We're likely to be waiting for some years yet for a killer application for wireless mobile internet, says PricewaterhouseCoopers Sydney-based management consultant Fred Balboni.

"Meanwhile, though, "I think we are seeing a straight-line extension of the stuff we already know is popular on the internet -- email [the wired internet's classic "killer" app] is happening in the mobile space," he says. Microsoft is launching a wireless version of its MSN and Hotmail services, so mail can be received through suitably enabled phones and personal digital assistants.

"Balboni was in New Zealand for the local launch of PwC's Technology Forecast 2001-2003, which places heavy emphasis on the potential of mobile internet.

"Email is not really a killer application, but "an easy comfortable extension" of current mobile phone messaging capabilties, he says.
