Winners: Mobile service companies

As the fast development of mobile phone technology, people today can use their cell phones to view news, check email, play game and even watch TV. My opinion is that mobile service companies, such as Verizon and T-mobile, will be the biggest winners in the future media and entertainment industry.

Besides the high demand for mobile entertainment and the large user base of mobile service companies, there are many business models for mobile service companies if they provide entertainment content. They can charge users subscription fees for the service or they can provide free entertainment service but gain revenue through advertisement.

I guess the future cell phone will be a mini laptop. It will beat iPod and portable game device, and become the most popular mobile entertainment device. The mobile service companies will finally benefit from providing entertainment services.
