Holway’s ultimate Martini Moment gets closer as iPlayer launches on the iPhone

Clearly Holway’s ultimate Martini Moment is getting closer and closer. You may remember that the original target was the ability to listen to The Archers “anytime, anywhere and on any device”. I’ve been there and done that. Now the aim is to watch to Coronation Street “anytime, anywhere and on any device”. Making iPlayer available on the iPhone brings that much closer – but you’ll only be able to do it whilst in WiFi range.

I was talking to Steve Posey – Global CTO @ Vodafone - last week and he believes that it will be maybe only two years until I could do that via a mobile network anywhere in the world. Certainly the LTE network Pusey announced – See Vodafone heralds handset that roams the world – should be up to the iPlayer task. But not until 2010 at the earliest.
