Thread Description:

James Pearce takes an interesting look at how inovative telcos and ad firms will very likely begin to advertise to your mobile in an opt-in viral way.

It's an interesting read if you're following this sector and a good primer on what the various options for mobile advertising are now, and may be in the future.
