wVoIP, dual-mode handset market moves slow

PC Magazine is running an article on Bryan Gardiner's experience at FierceMarkets' wVoIP Executive Summit last week, which is full of great quotes from the show: "Nothing in this dual-mode handset market is going to come quickly," said BridgePort Networks SVP Sanjay Jhawar. "The first million subscribers on dual-mode handsets is still at least six to nine months away. The problem is that carriers are embracing [wireless VoIP], but not all at the same speed. The MVNOs are probably going to be the fastest moving on this front." Tropos Networks' Ed Taulbee probably summed up the state of the market best when he said: "while these handsets are rapidly improving, the reality is that we [the wireless VoIP community] are still where cellular was maybe 10 years ago. It's just going to take some time."
