Thanks for sharing valuable ideas and opinions !
This looks like an excellent case study for creative outlet. |
Have you come up with any ideas yet?
Next 5 - 10 years is really hard to predict since innovations never though before have been witnessed in just few months.
Mobile TV has already made inroads, internet is already big on cellphones.
VAS like astrology, news, radio are prominent.
Blackberry messenger is one of a kind innovation.
Games, Business applications, GPS , app store like iphone and blackberry is something others would want to replicate.
I'm assuming free VOIP calls through internet, auto call answering, voicemail, movie on demand, multiplayer games, bluetooth / wifi innovations ( read pranav mistry's sixth sense technology ) are somethings they could keenly look into.
What else have you thought of?
What I think cellphone services providers may provide the facility of making transactions through cellphones more like credit/debit cards. On big malls and shopping centers, fuel filling stations or departmental stores , saying CELLPHONE TRANSACTION ACCEPTED.
Moreover, these service providers can make an investment plan kind of offering in which youth is motivated to make SAVINGS through cellphone. They may offer some return on amount exceeding certain limit. And users may be allowed the encashment of savings upto certain limit. This can be useful for both service providers and users especially youth, who wants immediate availability of money when wallet empties.
Talking about multimedia enhancement, the LIVE VIDEO TRANSMISSION from one place to another via cellphone
is an attractive deal for young generation. This can be provided by using internet technology. Most of the times when we are shopping for some high involvement product like dresses we wish to have opinion from some family member or friend. This feature will help in shopping. Video call is an option but that is not feasible until the recipient's phone also support the video call feature. But most of the phones today support internet and video streaming. well you haven't given clue about the 2nd question i-e What role will innovators and opinion leaders play in this era of new cellphone enhancements? bit confused about it
