Prof. Javier Zamora discusses the key points from the first day at the MWC, in particular the agreement between Telefónica and Mozilla. CEOs from big operators such as Telecom Italia, Vodafone and ATT all spoke about the role of Apple and Android. It also became clear that shopping and making payments via mobile phones is increasing rapidly. In a new departure, Facebook announced that apps can be bought from the site but billed via the service provider. Other big hitters such as Google and Cisco have yet to make their keynote speeches.
