MobileTechRoundup show #128, CTIA, S60 gaming, ULCPC, and WM 6.1

I was all excited about Sprint's XOHM WiMax after talking with Sprint at CES, but as you can hear from James and Kevin in MobileTechRoundup show #128 they were right to predict that rollout may be coming later than originally stated. We also talked about the excellent new, and free, Opera Mini 4.1 beta that is available for any Java-enabled mobile device. There was confirmation of rumors at CTIA this past week and we talked a bit about Windows Mobile 6.1 and the new IE Mobile application. I had to throw in some S60 news too and talked about the new Astraware game and N-Gage 2 releases. Velocity Mobile and their two new sweet devices was another topic of conversationg.

We closed with a teaser about a product we plan to discuss in our next show that James is currently testing.

WOA may soon eclipse SOA as most impactful business transformation agent

Is it better to seek business transformation, or perhaps to seek just enough transformation that creates better services for my employees and customers, ones that rely on the Web as much as possible? And if you don't need to go full-bore SOA on the infrastructure side to enjoy lower cost with better extension of application logic and data value, they why do it?

LifeSize Express

As an entry point into high-definition video conferencing (telepresence), LifeSize Express is hard to beat. It's a standalone solution that occupies the middle ground between PC-plus-webcam systems and vastly expensive telepresence suite installations.
