J2ME technology into the Enterprise: Slow to Adopt

Nokia is going after the wireless Enterprise market.

It'll be an uphill fight, since the Enterprise market is showing signs of very slow adoption of cell phone usage to access corporate data.

Most wireless Enterprise workers use a laptop PC, not their cell phone to access Enterprise data. The RIM pager and PalmOne Treo 600 smartphones are the exceptions, but are a niche market and are used primarily for corporate e-mail access.

Nokia will find that the Consumer market will continue to dominate the revenue stream for cell phones, while the wireless Enterprise market will flounder for a while, since Enterprise workers can continue to use their wireless laptop PCs with faster 802.11b/g connections and are able wait until they get to their office PCs with also much faster and more secure connections to their Enterprise networks.

Anytime, anywhere Enterprise access sounds nice in theory, but in practice not every Enterprise worker wants to be connected to work 24/7. There are other things to life, ya know!
