PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Are Microsoft, Apple and Google quietly preparing for war with mobile carriers? I think so. With all the advancements in mobile phones in the past 10 years, the part that’s been woefully slow to advance is the phone part. Making calls, placing calls, searching for signal and scrimping minutes hasn’t changed much since the phone came out, because carriers have little motivation for innovation.

I think the author's point is that companies like Microsoft & Google will have the capacity to completely avoid all those problems you mention because they'll use technology like Wifi/Wimax that gets things done without worrying about 4G licenses etc.
