Sprint CEO talks place-shifting

During his speech at the Yankee Group Wireless Leadership Summit this week, Sprint CEO Gary Forsee said the future of the wireless network is allowing users to place-shift their applications from a home or office environment to a mobile setting. According to Forsee, Sprint subscribers share 30 million photos, play 2 million games and access 1 billion Web pages every month. He also noted that data services make up 10 percent of the company's revenue. While Sprint already derives more than 85 percent of its revenue from its wireless division, Forsee expects place-shifting technologies to boost that percentage even higher.
