Can someone tell me , in simple terms, what services can be accessed on the iPhone/ Nokia 95 etc.
A: Pls see my Dec'06 presentation to the JCC: http://www.telefonica.net/web2/wengelin/3M.pps
Is the sending and receiving of data on your mobile the same as MMS ?
A: No, this is a separate service.
Can the Nokia 95 log in as a Browser? and display Web pages? and receive Emails ?
A: Yes, also run Skype or any other internet p2p service, unless the operator blocks these services (the case on most 3G services in e.g. France).
Can a Nokia 95, bought in UK with a UK service provider, be used in Spain ?
A: Yes, but it is expensive, as it is on roaming. EU is pushing for lower roaming charges.
Can it still log in as a Browser?…and get Emails ?
Surely the cost of 'online' time to receive the data would be exorbitant if roaming charges were applied.
Could you simply change the Sim card to a Spanish one and then log in to a Spanish Mobile provider and receive the Web data using Spanish charges?
A: Absolutely, provided the device is not locked to the UK provider.
You'll gather that I'm very new to this but these devices are becoming ' the thing to have….' but NOW!
The recent Mobile World Congress in Barcelona was full of these devices.
A good subject for a Thursday talk at the JCC?
A: We could do an update of the Dec'06 pitch.
