The midway for the Carnival of the Mobilists this week is set up this week at MobileJones. Featured posts are a reflection of mobile’s push to data and multimedia in 2008: Handset companies, former handset companies, Internet companies, new entrants and social networking giants are all involved in mash-ups of services. The best mobile blogging is showcased each week at the Carnival.
Included this time is a post last week on SmartMobs: “Can the Cell Phone Help End Global Poverty?” introducing an article from the New York Times Magazine on the travels and intelligence gathering of Nokia’s Jan Chipchase. Carnival host Debi Jones writes for her mobilist audience: “With the ubiquity of the cell phone comes opportunities beyond sales of games and dating applications.”
