Look Ma! No Wires
One thing's for sure: no matter what kind of application you may seek to access wireless solutions are likely to be available. Our own survey turned up ways to bring everything from medical records to scoring results from educational testing services to PDAs and other handheld devices. For busy individuals who must stay on the move—be they medical professionals, delivery people, roving consultants, or repair technicians—wireless links mean they can transport what they need to know wherever they might be, and access that information whenever they need it. Though some applications and technologies must learn to live with certain limitations, they all benefit from the ability to go to the scene of the action and access the world of information that lies behind meaningful professional activity, no matter where it might occur.
That's why we think wireless technologies, applications, devices, and appliances will continue to proliferate, and why they''ll find ways to play increasing roles in personal and professional aspects of most people's lives.
