JAMM Contest: Ilium wants to know …


I’m browsing my feeds earlier and I came across a little question from Ilium regarding Web 2.0 and the future or mobile devices. Specifically they wanted to know:

What do you see in the future for Mobile Device Software? How are you using the web with your mobile device? What can we offer or do that will help you to stay organized as the world of mobile devices evolves?

So, being an iPhone user … you can imagine I’ve got some thoughts on the mess that is Web 2.0. I’m going to copy over my post after the break so you can see what my thoughts are. Anyway, as I’m sure you’re wondering what all this has to do with the December Ilium Contest?

Ilium wants to know (and so do we) what your thoughts are for how you will be using mobile devices and Web 2.0 in the future. This month’s contest is going to revolve around this set of questions from Ilium. How to win – As usual you can enter just by posting in the comments. You can gain an extra entry by responding to Ilium in their blog and sending me an email to jammcontest [[at]] gmail [[.]] com with the link to your comment. (You get the link to your comment by clicking on the date in your post.)

I’ll pick a set of three winners randomly from all the entries Sunday December 2 at 8pm EST. Up for grabs? Your choice of either eWallet, Listpro, or Newsbreak.

By entering this contest, you authorize Just Another Mobile Monday, and its representatives, to provide your personal information (such as, but not limited to your name and email address) to the sponsors of this contest should you be selected as a winner. Your personal information will not be sold by Just Another Mobile Monday, or otherwise retained for any purpose except that described herein.

    I see the value of web based apps, but what happens when you don’t or can’t have web access. I much prefer device based apps that can connect when needed.

    I think web 2.0 apps are helpful in many ways – making things previously impossible everyday reality – for example new Google Maps Mobile and their new My Location feature (low end GPS replacement – position measured using GSM data) or social networking webs (Facebook, MySpace, Youtube) or my first place to look for info on the net – Wikipedia. The downside is that more and more personal information is being kept on the servers and being publicly available.

    I think some information and programs should stay on the device (offline) – i do want to have my contacts on some server somewhere, nor personal notes or just things I want to keep private. I think the same applies for business clients – usually the most important data we keep on our devices are personal data. Putting personal data aside I do not want those devices to degenerate into some sort of dumb terminals unable to operate offline.
    I think the area with greatest opportunities of the Web 2.0 in the mobile devices are games and social networking apps/sites.

    Have a nice day everyone!

    Future of the mobile devices? Ehmm.. I see it this way: the most of social interaction will go online through webs like Facebook and MySpace. Games will go online and multiplayer too (social gaming networks?). Prices of devices will drop and to make them more appealing to young consumers they will go more for multimedia capability (imho the biggest strenght of iPhone is multimedia). With dropping prices of the 3G internet connection the online capability of the devices will be more and more crucial (display resolution to show the webpages correctly, flash enabled mobile browsers…).
