無線 2.0

A couple of interesting tidbits out of Japan for wireless web watchers. Firstly, an updated survey (alas, Japanese only) of PC users from shows that over 90% of respondents claim to use a laptop/notebook PC either at home, at work, or both. The top usage scenario (55%) was in personal travel or on business trips, though the number two scenario (26%) was at home or in the office. The article's authors interpret the results as pointing to signs of a break with desktop computing. If so, then the various NTT units' decision to pull together in WiFi connectivity is well-timed.
