Jakob Nielsen Picks Some Early Winners in Mobile Internet Access
In the latest Alertbox, Jakob Nielsen reports on his experiences at the DEMOmobile2000 Conference in Pasadena. Nielsen claims that the current crop of WAP devices has terrible usability. He prefers Palm devices and Blackberry pagers and PDAs.
Nielsen says, "Informal discussions with conference attendees showed that Blackberry is taking off as the
best and most loved product for mobile connectivity."
CTDATA has two developers using Blackberry pagers (specifically, the RIM 950). We are trying to determine if we can upgrade one of those units to the RIM 957, the device that combines wireless email with PDA functionality.
