Uk Users Turn Their Backs On Wap
Despite all the hype about the mobile internet
[sic],people who actually have actually used
WAP servicesgave the current state of technology a resounding thumbs-down.
In a field study of WAP users
carried out in London by title="Usability Guru Jakob's site">Jakob Nielsen
and released thisweek, 70% of those who had used WAP said that not only are WAP technologies,services and content not currently usable, the same study subjects alsodon't expect it to be usable at any point in the near future.
No real surprise to me - I can't think of any friends
or colleagues who actually use their spiffy WAP phones. The only peoplebenefitting as far as I can see are Cellnet, mobile phone shops and WAPdevelopers.
