Couldn't agree more: mobile internet is fun, but for a time...
Posted on 2-May-2003 09:19 | Filed under: Articles

"know I'm not the target "yoof" market, but this mobile internet thing really isn't working for me.

Not that the ability to send email or browse a website on my mobile phone as I sit on the ferry to and from work isn't a wondrous thing.

It is - a marvel in the "computing anywhere anytime" and "information at your fingertips" paradigms.

But here my problem begins - at my fingertips. Or rather my thumb tips. I find entering text via the phone's keypad slow, clumsy and well ... unnatural."
