What is the mobile internet?

Very simply, the mobile Internet is the same Internet that is connected to via a normal computer, but instead accessed by mobile devices. The mobile internet can be accessed by mobile phones, PDAs and wireless enabled laptops and desktops.

Services available on the mobile Internet include SMS text messaging.

According to Vodafone (marketing speak) – the “mobile internet, is internet in your pocket”. What they really mean by this is that because the mobile Internet can be accessed by mobile phones you can now access your e-mail and the web from your mobile phone.

Forget the mobile internet. Get mobile broadband for your laptop

What Vodaphone have not factored, is that now tens of thousands of users now access the Internet via their mobile laptop. For now, the mobile Internet is best used by a laptop with a mobile broadband dongle.
