Wireless 2.0

We’ve all been hearing tons about how wireless broadband is going to take over the country/world. Some examples:

If “Wireless 1.0” is the world we live in today (cell phones and wi-fi hotspots), where carriers cripple the features on our devices, what’s the next step going to be? Could having so many new standards open the door for “Wireless 2.0?” Here’s what I mean:

  • Ever-Present Internet Transition seamlessly between routers like a cell phone, but access the entire Internet at broadband speeds.
  • Open Protocols for Open Development Carriers will not have control over what sent over the air. Service/content providers will be King.
  • Device Interoperability Any device will be able to take advantage the Ever-Present Internet
