Cellphedia, according to its home page, is "the 1st Ubiquitous Social Encyclopedia". Think of it as a cross between Wikipedia and online social networks, for your cell phone. This was developed as part of founder's Limor Garcia graduate thesis at New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program. Right now it seems more suited to trivia questions, but as the knowledgebase grows, I believe that the utility will grow as well. It will be interesting to see if she seeks to grow it as a business, how that business fares, and the direction the cellphedia community takes as it grows.

As part of the WWW2005 Conference, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has announced a broad initiative for bringing a better web experience to handheld users. Called the Mobile Web Initiative (MWI),

... recognizes the mobile device as a first class participant of the Web,"
-- Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director

The MWI appears to be focused mostly on mobile phone users, and is an attempt to bring together the various elements of accessing data from a mobile device from content providers to wireless carriers, including software, hardware and infrastructure vendors. Two areas will initially be addressed: best practices and mobile device descriptions.

This could have a very positive impact on anyone leading the TeleInterActive Lifestyle™ and it will be interesting to see how this initiative develops over the next few years.

Verizon's V710 Ticks off the Web

Chris Lindquist writes in Tech LinkLetter about his experience with the Verizon implementation of the Motorola V710 phone. Our research showed the same problems, but with our Palms. Verizon and Motorola have so broken Bluetooth, that we wouldn't be able to hook up to the Internet using our Tungstens and the V710.

There's even some question as to whether or not the V710 can hook-up to non-Motorola Bluetooth headsets.

As ATTWS degrades in service, we've been looking at Verizon as a possible carrier. They have a great reputation and good coverage. But they only have this one Bluetooth phone, and it's broken. :crazy:

Very frustrating. So, we're still searching for the "ideal" mobile and wireless connections.
