ABSTRACT
This article presents findings of a survey conducted by In-Stat, which found that cellular telephone users have mixed feelings about emerging functionalities in the U.S. According to the firm's survey, WiFi- and Skype-enabled handsets, voice-activated text input, and mapping and traffic routing were proposed features that resonated with respondents. However, few respondents expressed interest in using wireless phones to make physical purchases or to watch television.
