Come on ESRI Canada webpage developer… you can do better than this!
I’m not sure why more companies don’t do this! NIM has released a YouTube video directly from CTIA Wireless 2008 describing what they to offers visitors to their booth. With smartphones now shipping with high quality video and mobile apps like Shozu enabling rapid upload to youtube, I would expect this to be more common. Although, it’s likely that one would have to upload their 5 minute vid via PC outside the exhibition hall due to the typical bandwidth over-usage at these shows… also, Shozu won’t handle a 10MB upload too well! I hope to see more of these on YouTube soon!
In the video, Networks In Motion’s CEO, Doug Antone, describes the company and introduces its newest application, AtlasBook Navigator™, a software platform available to NIM’s wireless carrier partners to implement into their own branded mobile phone navigation applications.
Interesting findings about the Apple iPhone:
Som mixed feelings in the research as about 40% report that it can’t display all the websites they want to visit. On the up-side, Phone Bills have increased by an Average of 24% – this is what the carriers want to see!
– Users are young Apple veterans. Half of US iPhone users are under 30, and 75% are prior Apple customers.
-The iPhone is expanding the smartphone market. About 50% of iPhone users replaced conventional mobile phones, while 40% replaced other smartphones. The Motorola Razr was the conventional phone most often replaced, while Microsoft Windows Mobile devices and the RIM Blackberry were the smartphones most often replaced.
– Email is the #1 function. The most used data function on the iPhone is reading (but not writing) email, with about 70% of users doing that at least once a day. About 60% said they browse the web on the iPhone daily.
– The iPhone increases mobile browsing. Over 75% of iPhone users say they do a lot more mobile browsing on it than they did with their previous mobile phone.
– Browsing compatibility problems. About 40% of iPhone users say it has trouble displaying some websites they want to visit. This is probably due at least in part to the absence of Adobe Flash on the iPhone.
– The iPhone drives carrier switching. About half of iPhone users switched carriers to AT&T when they obtained the iPhone.
