Nobody knew that SMS would be such a hit. I think a buddy list will rock. Or at least a similar approach. I think sending images and things efficiently needs more bandwidth. More enhanced messages, think greating cards, need more bandwidth. Business users would love to be online anywhere if possible at good speeds.

WAP pages would get more complicated and better when there is more bandwidth. You could surf normal web sites from another device with higher speeds. There are numerous things that can and possibly will happen.

I cannot see the future here but I am probably missing something big. As the ex Intel CEO Moore (was that him? :)) said (and I am doing this from memory):

In the 1980s I missed predicting the personal computer. In the 1990s I missed predicting the internet. Today I am probably missing something very important again.

Something like that. I think you get the point.
