ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the usage of the term convergence in the wireless telecommunications industry. He argues that convergence is attached onto several mergers of voice and data services, from mixed media messages to the picture-telephone. He asserts that convergence demonstrates how completely ingrained wireless has become, to the point that all other things want to be linked with it.
