Atul Chitnis is a man who needs no introduction. Wherever you find technology, you can find him. He is the Senior Vice President of Geodesic Info Systems. I will talk about Geodesic later. First lets see what Atul talked about.
Atul talked about challenges faced by Mobile Internet from a user prespective. User is none other than us. What are the problems faced by us. GPRS connectivity being the biggest one of them. While using GPRS what we need to understand is that mobile device has its limitations. We cannot expect mobile phones to behave the same way as a PC with high speed internet. Atleast we cannot expect such things to happend in current scenario.
We are living a digital life. A good example he gave was that even if he forgets to take his spectacles while going for a walk, he wouldnt forget his mobile coz if he has his mobile with him, he can probably listen to music with his eyes closed. Err… not while driving of course. After which he also showed a demo of Mundu IM and Mundu Radio.
Coming back to Geodesic Systems… you must be already knowing about the company if you are a regular reader of IC-CHIP.
