Wireless: suddenly, it's everywhere. If you want to understand it, really understand it, without getting an engineering degree, check out The Essential Guide to Wireless Communications Applications.
In this book, Network magazine editor Andy Dornan walks you through all the wireless applications and standards that matter, from WAP to high-speed 3G, PCS to Bluetooth and beyond. You'll learn what's real now, what might be real in a year, and what's going to stay hype for a long time to come.
What are all these cell phone "generations"? (2-1/2 G? 4G?) How does wireless data work now, and what's on the horizon? What can the wireless web do -- and what can't it do? What are the most promising M-Commerce applications, and what business and technical issues will have to be resolved before M-Commerce takes off? Will the device of choice be a phone, a Palm, or what? Dornan explains -- concisely, in English.
This is a perfect book for folks who make wireless buying (or investing) decisions, folks who do marketing or PR for wireless and telecom companies -- and for millions of wireless power users who just can't wait to see what's next. (Bill Camarda)
