    Chetan has some solid advice: If AT&T and T-Mobile inject marketing dollars into the launch, then Lumia could see a similar growth trajectory to the one that catapulted Android Droid (via Verizon Wireless) into the center of the action. Will 2012 be the year of mobile commerce? If this is indeed a momentous year for mobile retail and transactions of all kinds, then what will happen to the mix of payment options and players currently jockeying for position? Should we expect a showdown between credit card companies, carriers, banks, aggregators and the likes of PayPal?

Much like I remember where I was when I learned the tragic news that John Lennon had been shot (I was watching Monday Night Football and heard it from broadcaster Howard Cosell), I’ll now never forget where I was and what I was doing when I learned of Steve Jobs’ passing. It’s rather fitting that I was 36,000 feet in the air connected to an in-flight Wi-Fi system working on a MacBook Air at the time. And that brings me to another connection between Lennon and Jobs.

    recent report from Wireless Intelligence reveals that ARPU across the 27 European Union countries has dropped by a staggering 20 percent over the last three years — and the decline continues. Faced with a dramatic and continuous double-digit decline in the ‘average revenue per user’ (ARPU) mobile operators have to learn how to sell more services to more customers better. But don’t think that broadcasting offers to an even broader subscriber base will do the trick. While prices for voice calls continue to fall, consumer demand for data usage—most notably video—is on the rise.
