Welcome to the 88th edition of carnival of the mobilists!
Sit comfortably and get ready for a blast of the best mobile writing of the week :)
Let's start with my pick for the best post of the week:
Mobile Content and Apps
Nick Cowie shows a very convincing (and funny) video demo of why should we build mobile specific websites.
New comer (welcome!) Rita El Khoury of Dotsisx shares from her experience handling a new WM mobile handset in comaprison to Symbian OS.
Debi Jones of Mobile Jones brings a great overview of Nokia's history of failures with marketing in the US market and Nokia's latest decision of launching the new US market device, the N95 3, in London(!).
C Enrique Ortiz of ...About Mobility raises the importance of pricing models as one of the main obstacles to adoption of new mobile applications and services and shares some tips for mobile software product developers to reduce costs.
Tim Trent of Marketing by Permission brings "hot from the press" the insights of Renzo Marchini and Kate Tebbutt of Dechert LLP, London about the legality of Bluetooth spamming.
Paul Ruppert of Mobile Point View raises the question of whether multimodal messaging is the death of mobile text messaging and answers in a solid overview of the market divided to 2 parts (don't miss part 2 later on this week).
Jason Devitt of Skydeck responds to Tracy Ford's (one of the editors of RCR Wireless) article where she suggested that allowing any device to run on wireless networks would make life harder for developers and not necessarily increase the choice of handsets for consumers.
Ian Welsh of The Agonist also talks about the need for openness in the mobile industry.
Well, that concludes this edition. Have a great week and hope to catch up next week at my dear friend Dennis @ the Wap Review :)
