John Cook was kind enough to let me guest post on TechFlash today, on a theme which turned out to be quite timely given Amazon’s introduction of the new Kindle DX. The post is about how mobile consumer devices like the Kindle and the iPhone have finally wrested the grip of the mobile phone networks from the device itself.
To me it’s a rare instance where you can witness an industry transformation occur before your eyes. Or perhaps watch a train wreck occur in slow motion. The carriers will never be the same, but holy cow, we’re all in for some great new mobile products and experiences as a result.
