I predict VCast will go out in a poof of smoke. The next boom of cell
technology is not video but onboard storage and doubling up the device
as a portable music player. I doubt VCast will be able to hold on long
enough -- everyone is and will be pre-occupied with higher resolution
cameras and mp3s for now and the immediate future.
