EV-DO aside, more and more people use their phones for data services like email, web-browsing, and more. You’ve seen my Crackberry article – yes, this goes way beyond Blackberry devices.
I personally use a Treo 700p and use it for data many times per day. I have become efficient enough with it that it is easier to find a phone number and check my email than it is to open Outlook.
However, I find an amazing number of tech-savvy and business users who do not understand the technology, capabilities, or ease of use. They don’t understand how it can be an extra tool in their toolbelt to help them become more productive and effective.
So, if you haven’t jumped on the mobile data jet-powered-bandwagon, get on because this thing is moving fast and will not wait for you.
