Experts from the wireless services industry join with academic researchers to explore the impact of the "twin drivers" of the Internet and mobility on the state and future of wireless technology in light of the arrival of so-called third generation (3G) mobile services. The papers in the volume were contributed at a conference sponsored by the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information (CITI). Topics include spectrum friction, leapfrogging of bottlenecks, regulatory successes and failures, wireless value chain and capital market perceptions, and network economics. The volume does not include a subject index. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
