Resource update - Nokia paper on Mobile P2P
The always-excellent Digital Music News (www.digitalmusicnews.com) today refers to a Nokia whitepaper on this issue, which figured in last month's Global Telecom Monthly and formed part of my presentation at the Columbia P2P video event last week (a review of which is forthcoming). With operators and handset vendors rushing to embrace Wi-Fi as another feature set on the handset, with mesh topologies an evermore promising proposition (cf. http://www.meshnetworks.com/index.htm), and with Samsung leading the charge on mobile storage (http://www.samsung.com/PressCenter/PressRelease/PressRelease.asp?seq=20040907_0000069353&type=TelecommunicationNews), it looks evermore likely that Nokia's conclusion is entirely on the ball: "Sharing content between mobile phones using Gnutella or similar protocols may be within reach."
