The article focuses on mobile multimedia. Mobile multimedia won't compete with off-air broadcasting or cable TV or DVDs. It won't compete with laptop access to the Internet. It's an entirely new market, and proponents will have to create entirely new demand. The folks who developed the Blackberry figured out how to do that. The folks who developed Iridium didn't. Technically, mobile multimedia should work, although battery capacity is still a challenge. But the big question is whether there is a marketplace demand. An Internet search reveals plenty of conferences and workshops.
