There is a sense of déjà vu at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, says Prof. Javier Zamora.

However, we are entering a new era in which people use mobiles not just to get information but to use new services from the Internet of things.

  1. Smartphones will see a lot of great innovations and experiments, the market created by apple and Google will see many new competitors, with Firefox OS and Ubuntu OS ready to win the hearts of gadget lovers.

  2. Nice video, I guess we would see a great technological revolution this year. So many smartphones and the most anticipated Google Glass! Let’s sit and watch.

  3. This year I have been to the mobile congress in Barcelona, I see amazing things but the most one were the operative system for mobiles from Mozilla!

    Today is a “war” between Android and Apple and the OS of Firefox I think it will promise!! Let the time past…

  4. Very insightful. I couldn’t agree more the telecommunications industry must change and focus on operating like small startups with a focus on innovation and in intrapreneurship rather than acting like large utility companies.

    I especially liked his closing comments about how mobile is transforming the way that value is added, especially in the context of health.

    Great post!

  5. That’s true the true meaning of mobile is lost between internet and other mobile apps.
