Welcome to my blog

Welcome and thank you for visiting my blog....

This is where I will pen my thoughts on Enterprise Mobility and other wireless technologies based on my learning’s/ experience over the course of my IT career.

The wireless world has been a very exciting place to be over the last few years. We have seen the introduction of ground breaking products and technologies have reached a never-before-seen level of maturity. The rate of enterprise adaptation to wireless technology is only accelerating day by day.

This is a personal blog and will focus on my thoughts and perspectives on wireless technology. Please feel free to share your opinions and viewpoints so that it can be discussed and debated. Though I would like to, I won't be able to post to this blog each day. Will try my best to write whenever I get time.

I hope that you will return often to this blog. Thanks again.

To Barcelona for Mobile World Congress...and back

I was kind of excited about GSMA Mobile World congress at Fira De Barcelona, Spain. I finally made it for the event. The event scheduled from 15th to 18th Feb was a big event, well organized and participated by all the leading firms of Mobile ecosystem. The MWC at Barcelona surpassed my expectations..!!
The MWC 2010 certainly did not disappoint me. It was some of the new handsets that made headlines this year (though several cell phone manufacturers, including Nokia and LG, didn't even have booths) , however the applications/software developed on devices that stole the show.

At MWC, as I understand companies like the spotlight and when it comes to shows like these, big brands always like the best faces market their products and it does pretty good for their publicity. I was part of SAMSUNG Wave booth and you could spot not only phones but also good looking faces at this booth.

Samsung had more in its stand than new slim and shiny Samsung wave, the first handset to run on new BADA operating system. Besides displaying a gallery of handset they displayed range of business applications on their new devices. (Omni II and Scala). It also had suite of consumer apps including social networking, Location aware services to games at its booth. Samsung also unveiled its SAMSUNG Beam, the first android phone with built in projector that caught the attention of all the vistitors.
Indeed, MWC 2010 is a great opportunity to take stock on the state of the mobile ecosystem, and to see what’s coming, both in the coming year and beyond.
