Trends 2006: What’s Next For Wireless Email

All the media hype around Research In Motion (RIM) and NTP ignores basic changes that are afoot in the established wireless email market. What to expect in 2006? RIM won’t shut down, there will be no new wireless email features, and choices will narrow as BlackBerry and Microsoft dominate the wireless email market. Expect more companies to move beyond wireless email and deploy mobile line-of-business applications. Wireless email products will become more standardized, and the chaos of management, security, and integration features embedded in wireless email products will start being extracted and put in more traditional system areas.
