Handsets Drive Cellular
When I explain to people that Handsets are what has been and is driving cellular, many think I am nuts. Yeah? How come most PR from VZW is about its new handsets? The new Treo, the new Blackberry, the new Nokia. Cingular has iPhone - and THAT WILL drive subs. The cellular market is flat now - 200+ million accounts. It is like TV - it is stealing from your competitor. How do you do that? Better network - but that is always a function of where you reside and travel. And the Handset, which ties in with services. It will be the same with Muni Wi-Fi. Watch.
