Nokia CEO Says Consumers Are Starting to Demand Internet on Their Phones
So far the U.S. has been a PC-centric country. The majority of consumers, paying for broadband services, do not believe it makes sense to buy a duplicate service just to download music or check email between their home and the office. Handset makers, wishing to keep harmony with the carriers, would like to see the costs for IP-based services come down. In the meantime, says Nokia CEO Jorma Ollila (in the last part of a podcast of his CTIA Wireless 2006 keynote) new technologies and platforms are helping to increase efficiency.
