MobileTechRoundup #121, CES 2008 is a wrap, Fictionwise buying eReader, AT&T 5GB limit

The Mobile Tech Roundup gang returned from CES 2008 and one of us actually returned US$10,000 richer (hint, it wasn't me). Listen to MobileTechRoundup show #121 to find out how that happened and what we thought of CES this year. It seems that Intel's Menlow and WiMAX were popular and may be the compelling technologies in mobile devices this year. Nokia showed off some software and services that impressed us too. James reported that Fictionwise purchased eReader and he is worried about what this may mean for his favorite ebook service. As a long time Fictionwise customer I anticipate this will be a good thing for ebooks. AT&T may also be implementing a 5GB limit on their "unlimited" wireless service and we discuss if that will really have much of an impact on people's usage. Pocket Informant has also been upgraded to version 8.
