We are interested in learning as much as we can about this change so that we can assess the consequences to our merchant customers and to the future of the wireless terminal business.

From what I read, one of the problems is that equipment suppliers have stopped manufacturing CDPD network parts due to low demand, leaving carriers like AT&TWS and Verizon in a lurch when it comes to maintaining their CDPD networks. AT&TWS is transitioning CDPD customers over to GPRS, a new 3G wireless service that offers higher speeds and presumably more business opportunity for carriers, which translates into greater market demand for equipment.
