Regarding PDAs acquiring phone capability.
I noticed today (26 Sept) that Handspring Visor is advertising an add on module that turns a Visor PDA into a phone.
Service plans are still being determined, they say.
I am a visual kinda guy (aren't most guys?) After all, anyone hear of a text-to-voice version of Playboy--just for "reading it only for the articles"? It seems to me that in the convergence of internet data with telephone/voice the advantage goes to the system with the larger screen (i.e. PDAs have an advantage over cell phones here). And at risk of getting flamed, yeah I understand there are technical differences at the network levels for transmitting voice vice data to correct for latency, error correction, etc., etc., blah, blah, blah.
And for those who need an even larger screen (laptop), and MOBILE wireless, there are some interesting things developing in the MCOM arena.
cheers....
