"Today the business is all about software and intellectual property," Comcast svp strategic planning Mark Coblitz told the NCTA/Cable Center Academic Seminar while fielding numerous questions about the MSO’s wireless and mobility plans from professors. Comcast acknowledges that consumers want mobility, Coblitz said, but "it’s the be all and end all," particularly when the majority of Comcast subs are analog. Still, he anticipates wireless integration from Comcast, with the first products being communications solutions "to make your life easier," like a common mailbox between your home and wireless device. On other topics, Coblitz said he welcomes WiMax, "it’ll push us to innovate" and believes "the telcos have a long way to go [in building their systems] before they can be competitive with us."
