What is it exactly ?
Tethering is using your phone's EDGE or 3G connection as a modem for your laptop or desktop
hmmmm interesting...... Like portable wi-fi?
That's the idea. Mobile Broadband.
Thats freaken awsome!!
Yea. It only works with iPhones. And has a data limit.
I think once Wi-Max arrives the whole cell phone market and data plan structure will change to unlimited minutes, data and no contracts.
Why? LTE pwns WiMax, and plus, it is very expensive. Contracts are part of it. And you may get the other for $200 a month.
Companies like Google and free phone service for one.
I also see a trend on free Wifi/Wimax in many cities and goverment plan.
Many companies are offering Wifi phones and some even have Wi-max phones in the works for home and cell.
Unless ATT opens its eyes I think they will relize that Apple its partner has set up the I-touch to be the next VOIP phone. Combine that with your existing internet connection and free Google, no more land line needed.
So once they catch on whats happening you will see price drops and a war between the big three or should I say four now, Google.
This is just the start, I don't think all internet will be free but more will be.
The Cable/Satellite companies are facing the same thing since Boxee and Roku have provided some new internet only mostly Free TV options or Buy what you only want ala cart. So I see some big changes happening there as well.
I Expect the apple TV/ Mac Mini, Roku box or even believe it or not the nintendo Wii may have a big part in the next big thing. Internet based TV/gaming in the living room.
The cable companies are already trying to shut down Boxee, but I think it is already to late.
My thoughts on the future, I don't think I'm too far off track.
let me know what you think.
Oh, okay. Hmm...portable Wifi .
Yes, but with a hefty cost. Most likely an extra $30 a month with AT&T
No more negative thoughts like that think Free Wi-Fi and Wi-Max connections
Ok. Whatever you say
