Last night we talked a bit about retail informatics. One of the things we didn’t talk about was the move from retail stores to highly mobile retail. When I got home, this commercial (wmv format) from Nextel was on. (I know we have an alektorophobe in the class who should probably avoid watching; I don’t know if she also has megameleagrophobia.) It provides an interesting view of how mobile devices can be used now. Nextel also provides phones that allow you to track your employees and fleets with GPS for example. I wonder where this extends, looking forward.
