Dual Mode for Hong Kong

- April 13, 2006 - 0 Comments

Hong Kong never sleeps and its seems EVERYONE is always on their phone. Here phones are fashion and not just functional. Yet 3G services, the promise of cellular broadband, is slow to take off. Definitely a conudrum for a society where many people carry two phones, one tethered to a necklace, dangling like a proud locket, megapixel camera and the ready.Perhaps allowing these phones to connect corporate networks, to services such as directories and databases could drive faster adoption of 3G and Wi-Fi. Remember the Chinese proverb: “Distant water won’t quench your immediate thirst.”
