The Feature: Will Vodafone Live! shake up the mobile world beyond carrier portals?
This is another very interesting article on The Feature. The author explore Vodafone live! and concludes it's nothing more than a portal. But, for that matter, one that works.

"On the face of it, Live! is simply a portal that works. Is that something a carrier should be congratulated for? Not necessarily, but considering earlier efforts and the more than respectable subscriber and sales figures Vodafone is seeing, Live! is looking pretty impressive. Some observers have remarked that Live! looks much like the mobile space's answer to AOL of the early and mid-'90s. But while AOL was built on paid access to a walled-garden community, Live! is all about a walled garden of content. "
