Are Carriers Set To Change The Wireless Expense Management Landscape?

Are Carriers Set To Change The Wireless Expense Management Landscape? Hmm.  You’d think these days I’m on a total wireless expense management kick, given the above average commentary I have been trying to provide on the subject.  Think of it instead as two things: 1) I am trying to provide a broader set of perspectives on the overall enterprise mobility perspective and 2) wireless expenses [...]

The Gloves Are Off – Android Style

The Gloves Are Off – Android Style The weekend here in Boston was strange, to say the least.  As usual, the weather forcasters are paid well to be completely wrong (I wish I had that job).  Yesterday, I was watching my beloved New England Patriots embarass their opponents from Tennessee in the snow.  Yes, snow in October.  That’s just wrong.  And then [...]

Carrier Marginalization Part II: Verizon Wireless vs. App Stores There was much being said in the last 48 hours regarding the rumor that Verizon Wireless had scrapped its plans to offer Palm’s webOS based Pre in early 2010 once its exclusivity to Sprint expires.  Then we saw the expected response from Palm itself as it holds the party line to continue offering its devices on [...]
