The Future of Wireless

Mon Nov 8, 1999 - 10:00 AM EST - By James Hromadka

The Wireless IT 99 conference was held recently, and Jeff Hawkins had this to say about the future of wireless technology:

"Over the next few years we're going to see these kind of things become really, really popular...[But] for the great user experience you need a consistent connection.... We have to get to wireless data access that is essentially free.... We have to be connected all the time at no cost."

Hawkins also believes that e-commerce will be the killer app of wireless computing. If you can order a CD using your Visor, why would you wait until you were home to buy it?Click here for the complete Wired article.
