The joint mobile operating system and rants from MIR

September 21, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Ewan MacLeod over at Mobile Industry Review in his weekly newsletter (something I think everyone with mobile technology inclinations should find an interesting  read) put together a very long winded, though rather valid argument as to what mobile operators in their attempts to avoid becoming “dumb pipes” have done wrong and what HE believes they could focus on bringing to the table. Can’t say I always agree with his musings but this post definitely deserved to be mirrored here and inevitably discussed by our quite vocal readers. 🙂

One choice quote from the newsletter,

“There is perhaps one more thing that’s worse than a mobile operator trying to innovate in unfamiliar markets: It’s another utility provider, such as your local electricity provider, trying to sell you entertainment services.”

I’m sure you guys can’t wait to read the rest so here’s a link to the rest of it. Leave your views in the comments section!
