This book will give you a solid understanding of wireless technologies so you can make an informed purchase decision the next time you buy wireless equipment or services. You will also get an insider's view of how the industry works and where it's headed.From the Author:
In the two and a half years since the first edition of this book was published, 59 million people signed up for new wireless phone service. That's a growth of 84 percent! There have been some terrific reductions in the cost of wireless phone usage. In fact, a growing number of people are using cell phones as their only phones or to replace their long distance carriers.
3G promises some very exciting applications. Technological advancements such as OLED displays s will give us cheaper phones, and 3G data speeds will allow us to do things with our phones and palmtops that we can only dream of today. Bluetooth, finally becoming a reality in 2002, will help us cut the cord even more than wireless phones have.
There has never been a better time to get a wireless phone. There are lots of options for all types of users. I hope this book makes buying and using a wireless phone a more gratifying experience for you. You can find updates on URLs listed in the book at The Wireless Whiz website.
