I heard the guy running mobilefreedom.org at the MIT Enterprise Forum today. He sounds sincere and passionate, so watch his space for some information.
My contention is the release of Skype for the iPhone will define the market one way or the other. Google’s success on 700MHz will be the second indicator.
If Apple does not make efforts to block Skype and Google (with Apple?) wins the auction, the future is bright. If Google loses and Apple interdicts, we’re in for six more years of Winter.
