Welcome to the 171st version of the Carnival of the Mobilists, hosted by The Catalyst Code.
With competition in the Smartphone space getting so fierce, so fast, Mobile Stance thought it would be a good idea to take a step back and take a hard look as to whether App World has real legs or not, check out Handicapping Blackberry’s App World.
Karen Webster questions, Is Social Networking Going Mobile? after a recent opportunity a month or so ago to moderate a CTIA panel of really neat people who wanted to talk about mobile social networking.
Chetan Sharma offers up a summary of the NABSHOW in Las Vegas, NAP recap – Open, Personalization, Advertising as he presented and moderated at the Mobile Entertainment Summit. The show kicked off with a keynote from Matt Oomen, VP of Product and Technology development at Sprint Nextel as he laid the foundation for the day’s discussion with some overarching themes of Open Platforms, Open Devices, Social Networking, Personalization, and Broadband capabilities of the mobile industry.
If you don’t follow Russell Buckley on Twitter or missed some tweets (which is likely given the volume these days) check out some tweets at the Valencia Festival of Media and see who won the Best Mobile Campaign.
Check out Ajit Jaokar’s speech at the European Internet Foundation entitled, ‘Economic and Social Aspects of Blogs in the Digital Society 2025′ (with an emphasis on mobile of course!).
Aaron Chua gives us the tweet on twitter with his 15 Twitter Startup Ideas from the Web – Tweet him what you think.
Uh –oh, Dennis Bournique is asking, No More Openwave SDKs? And as he says, “It’s all a bit of a shame. Openwave was a mobile web pioneer and for a long time was the market leader with the best mobile browsers.”
800+ Companies, 47 Market Sectors, One Atlas. The whole team at Vision Mobile is excited (and relieved!) to finally announce the launch of the second edition of their Mobile Industry Atlas. The Atlas has been three months in the making with their team and network of advisors involved in the immense task of filtering and reviewing 800+ leading companies in the industry. This is the first time someone has put so many companies into one map and really distilled the complexity of the mobile industry into clear sense.
And stay tuned for next week’s Carnival hosted by Mobile Stance.
