I dont know about in the US but in the UK the barrier to ‘mobile 2.0’ has been the cost of web browsing on a mobile device and in 2008 the only thing that is going to change is that iPhone users who are paying though the nose for hardware and an extortionate monthly contract get unlimited data on their phones (skype anyone?). as soon as carriers release their stranglehold on data pricing then thats the only blockage to ‘mobile 2.0’ and has been since the 90’s! DoCoMo (or whatever its called) has been massively popular in the far east for many years wholly due to a more reasonable data pricing structure. Yes Opera is a neat browser, yes the iPhone brings true web page browsing to mobiles but until data and bandwidth are sorted then we’re going nowhere!
