Hi Philip and Arno
The "smart" capabilities of switching from a network to another
are sometimes described as part of the 4G.
This is great is theory but can we expect the JP operators
pushing telephones (Designed by them) with this feature
if could jeopardize the traffic revenue?
With the Triple Band GSM 900 1800 1900 you never
go out of the operator network.
Let's say you have a 3G phone that is also has a 802.11
connection. When you go back home you use 802.11 to
download music, videos, games and my e-mail at very
low cost. When you are around you listen to the music,
watch videos, and play games and as before you
use some low bandwidth services over the operator
network and some time, rarely, you download some video
This is already possible with any Symbian phone in Europe
by bluetooth manually but I do not think it is possible with
any keitai in JP and not because they haven't
got the technology ready...
The only thing new with those "smart" handsets is that they will
be capable of handling this in a transparent way.
So maybe we have to ask: Isn't this cutting the operator revenue?
Is this damaging their model?
Here in Italy there is already a big discussion about WIFI in
Telecom Italia group between in the same group between
Telecom Italia Mobile (TIM) and Telecom Italia Wireline
units as the second is going to deploy high number of
802.11 hotspots. TIM sees 3G potentially highly jeopardized
What do you think?
