    I agree with Erik Hersman’s thoughts the most. People have to start looking at ways around the walled gardens. Carrier-independent solutions. My thoughts on the mobile web as of 2020:

    1. Extensible feature phones(i.e those that can download apps) become the norm.
    2. Carrier independent e-commerce solutions carry the day.
    3. Affordable, truly unlimited data offerings become the norm.
    4. Mergers and acquisitions between leading content providers and ISPs become commonplace as data revenues are cannibalized
