I love mobile data – I use it plenty but I’m not of the evangelical school that says that mobile data will replace fixed data for everything.
It was really interesting (and refreshing) to read Scott’s post giving his views on what works, and what doesn’t, on the mobile web.
Quick Reference – the sort of thing you need at a bar when someone asks for some obscure piece of information
E-mail – self explanatory
Voicemail – believe it or not some people still do voice
Geography – Google maps et al
Access – cost of mobile access vs cost of fixed line access
Actually getting work done – office productivity, data entry and even routine blog entry
Extended text – I personally want to be able to see when I’m 60. Too much time spent reading text on a mobile won’t further this aim
Photos – when you’ve finished doing fancy finger work with photos on an iPhone – you’ll realise that it’s like comparing a box brownie with a Hasselblad
So what do you think – what do you do (and what don’t you do) on the mobile web?
