Web-connected mobile phones will be the number one way to surf the internet within three years, predicts Nokia chief, Jorma Ollila.
"The future is not PC-centric. It's mobile phone centric," he told an industry seminar on mobile and home networks in Tokyo.
Nokia, the world's largest mobile phone maker, has been aggressively pushing the convergence of mobile phones and the internet.
British Telecom group director Andy Green forecasts that all mobile phones sold in the UK next year will have net access. He predicts that PCs will slip down the chart for internet access. "Mobile phones, TV sets, games machines and then the PC will be the way to access the internet," he said.
Last year Nokia introduced Wap phones. This month, at the Cebit show in Hanover, it was clear the Wap revolution had hit. It was everywhere, as mobile phone and internet companies rush to get on the bandwagon.
Motorola alone has pledged $3.4bn to the research and development of mobile internet communications.
