Wireless Web Sites Getting Useful, Not There Yet
Posted: 01-Jul-2002 [Source: Reuters]

[A look at the state of wireless in the US as the four top wireless carriers roll out their high-speed networks over the course of the summer.]

by Ben Berkowitz, Los Angeles -- "It's the geek's dream commute: stand on the crowded subway and hold a strap with one hand while using the other hand to check the weather, review e-mail, play a mindless game or two and lay a wager on the latest match in the World Cup.

The wireless Internet has long been something of an enigma -- its usefulness is obvious in theory, but in practice Web sites tailored to wireless platforms have been slow, hard to read, often uninformative and always difficult to use properly.

But changes are in the air, as it were, with wireless phone carriers rolling out high-speed networks and phones with color screens, and manufacturers of personal digital assistants (PDAs) adding built-in wireless functions to their devices.

By the end of this summer, the four top wireless carriers in the United States will offer Internet access through their phones at speeds of three to 15 times those offered even six months ago, when cellular data was transmitted anywhere from 9.6 kbps (kilobits per second) to 14.4 kbps."
