Article Excerpt: Maximizing the Value of Mobility with On-the-Go Information, and Digital Entertainment.
By Ann-Marie Fleming,
As the number of mobile device users continues to grow and carriers pursue new means of increasing Average Revenue per User (ARPU), the shape of the wireless world is evolving. As the carriers and the industry as a whole look to new and exciting mobile applications, unique content through mobile search and digital mobile entertainment represent expansive areas gaining momentum as exemplified by recent reports from the CTIA Wireless IT & Entertainment 2005 trade show held late September.
Mobile Search is a growing theme as companies look to add value for consumers and carriers through direct search capabilities and associated advertising programs.
Developers of mobile TV and music applications are hoping to build on the momentum that the success of ring tone sales has established as it became a key driver to mobile entertainment.
“The first phase of mobile was all about text messaging and ringtones and we will continue to see these as being big drivers in the marketplace. Now as we get to mobile video it’s a whole new set of skills, the work just got a lot more complicated,” explains Kevin Nakao, GM of Mobile Services fro RealNetworks, Inc.
