There?s somewhere where video actually is the killer 3G app? Who would have thought?

Some interesting comments on usage patterns: ?After two years, Suh said that TU Media had found that consumers prefer traditional shows and live sports over made-for-mobile content. Primetime viewing hours are very different from those for traditional channels, reflecting commuting times and the role of mobile devices as second TV sets in a household...Hanaro TV?s Kim Sung-yong said his company was surprised to learn how many women were watching erotic content mid-evening on their cell phones.?
