Mike Masnick writes, In the ongoing effort to jump start mobile data offerings one company has come up with a solution it claims will make downloading data much easier. The only problem is the supposedly "easy" solution involves a complex system using bulky cards. There's a growing recognition that the complexity of getting data on and off of a handset is slowing down mobile data usage. A big part of this is the ongoing effort by many operators to block off the routes on to and off of the phone in order to force users to use operator approved cellular networks - complete with the operator run tollbooth. Subscribers are trying to download data to computer and then transfer it over to handsets is because it's much easier to surf the web and download things on a computer than on a handset - where a combination of the interface and (again!) operator interference makes things difficult.
