Comcast CEO on killer apps for Pivot

At CTIA I.T. last month, Sprint Nextel and its cable partners announced that their joint venture would be called Pivot; today Comcast CEO Brian Roberts offered a couple of ideas for the "killer apps" of Pivot: interoperability, wireless email and place shifted television. Roberts said, "Over time [the killer app is] going to be interoperability. Can I take my email and get it on another device? I've been watching my on-demand shows, I've stopped watching at home, I want to finish the last five minutes. Place won't matter." Roberts continued: "There'll be a relationship with the company that will manage my data, my television, my phone, my address books, and my voice mails. The seamless nature of that is what mobility brings."
