MobileInfo Comments and Advisory: Extending Wi-Fi like connection to passenger trains and to limousines gives busy executives an opportunity to stay connected to their offices. This makes them more productive. What we would like to see is seamless roaming between fixed line network, Wi-Fi hot spots and 3G networks. Technology for this available from many vendors. What you need are roaming agreements, single user interface and well-tested network handoffs, without user doing a lot except the user clicking to indicate his/her agreement to pay for the new service. Inmotiontechnology is on the right track - may be on the right limo to drive itself to the destination. We are afraid the final say will be from the carriers.
