Richard F Cecil writes about challenges facing the next step of mobile sevices.

“Achieving simplicity and speed of access is the key to expanding people’s perceptions of the mobile Web to include information, entertainment, and commerce services. If people are to use these services while they are on the go, we must avoid cramming as many features as possible into them-just so we can claim to have the biggest and best service. Instead, we should focus on offering the features that actually help people accomplish their goals-especially when those goals are time sensitive. For example, if you’re not sure what exit to take off the interstate, you need an answer now-not five minutes from now.”
