A familiar podcasting voice from MWC

Monday, February 27th, 2017

For those following MWC remotely (or need something to listen to on the hike to the Barcelona gatherings), Rafe Blandford is part of the DigitasLBi UK team who are bringing (hopefully) daily shows now MWC is under way. Start of with the preview that aired over the weekend – listen on Soundcloud – and check there tomorrow for more! 

Stop offering MWC tickets on their own as prize

I want to let you into a big secret about the recent Mobile World Congress and your smartphone. Nothing has changed since Monday. Nobody waved a big magic wand and suddenly the world is a happier place and all your problems (even just those around smartphones and mobile communications) have been solved. You could easily argue that MWC hasn’t even amounted to a hill of beans.

After all, the phones on display are pretty much out of reach for months. The Nokia N97 ‘changed our lives’ in November 2008, yet it’s still not available. The best Nokia could say is June, and even this is in only a few territories, at a rather high price. To the regular reader, that means the N97 will be in their hands (if they want it) close to a year after it was announced. Don’t even mention the Sony Ericsson  Idou…
