Did you hear the noise last week? Felt the rumble in the ground? It was the sound of a gigantic market finally starting to move in the direction in which it actually has a future.
For those who missed it, the 3G operator 3 launched a series of applications and a new fixed price pricing model for wireless internet usage in the UK, called X-Series. That’s right. They’re tearing down the wall.
This could spark a change for the entire industry, unleashing the creative powers of entrepreneurs and innovators. Add to that how Sun is open sourcing mobile java and Motorola announcing a similar move and the industry might be heading for a perfect storm as the platforms are opened and the walled gardens are torn down.
