A veteran of the Carnival of the Mobilists, C. Enrique Ortiz of About Mobility hosts Carnival #192. CEO reviews great entries from mobile bloggers on topics that include Opera Mini, Mobile Learning, App Stores, HD voice and Mobile music. Included in the reviews is a Golden Swamp recent post which CEO perceptively dubs being about “always on learning” — because it is mobile. When a student has a mobile, learning is always on tap, at the least, in her pocket.

Carnival of the Mobilists #151


Posted on 24th November 2008 by Judy Breck in Carnival of the Mobilists


Carnival #151 is a midway of this week’s best blogging about mobile — sparkling with visions into the future — written by experts with deep experience, keen vision, and some really interesting ideas about what lies ahead.

Howard Rheingold recounts on his popular SmartMobs blog the University of random twittering that he is experiencing on twitter, with “increasing frequency and accuracy.”

Also in the education area, my post this week from GoldenSwamp is about the future I see where: With a mobile in a pocket no child will be left behind in the golden age of global learning that is dawning.

Bringing her audience to full attention at a Future of Mobile conference, Helen Keegan of Musings of a Mobile Marketer said, as she does in this post, that there is no future to mobile, providing then 6 reasons why that will be true if we carry on the way we are going.

Vision Mobile has a post in the Carnival this week by Vanessa Measom about The 100 million club: the bigger picture of mobile software. Reading this post will sketch for you large dimensions against real facts for the mobile future.

Also in the mobile marketing venue, Mobile Point of View by Paul Ruppert gives us some insight into what is happening and what is ahead in: Coca Cola & Mobile Marketing: Reach & Refreshment.

Over on the allAbout iPhone blog, James Burland writes about Push notification as an App Store solution?, giving you a blogger’s expert look at an aspect of Apple’s future.

Analyzing The iPhone and Android Platforms as Validators, at C. Enrique Ortiz | Mobile Things, CEO provides lists of how both platforms are leading into the future.

We welcome Jose Colucci at m | strat, a blog of mobile strategy notes — with a post appropriate to the present economy: Lowering Your Carrier Fees.

Tam Hanna at TamaS60 – the S60 Blog, in a post with lots of images — FOMA / Raku-Raku phones -quick hands-on preview — concludes: “In the end, I don’t think that the upcoming demise of the FOMA phones will make anyone shed a single tear.”

Ram Krishnan at Mobile Broadband Blog gives us a knowledgeable essay on How Does 900MHz Spectrum Re-farming Impact the Femtocell Business Case?

At Open Gardens, Ajit Jaokar looks to the cloud emerging as huge for the future in a post titled: The EU cloud: Integrating the paradigms of cloud computing and sensor based interaction(Internet of things).

The final post of Carnival #151’s gaze into the future of mobile is by Chetan Sharma from his blog AORTA: Always On Real-Time Access. The post, Recap of “Tomorrow’s Wireless Future”, is Chetan’s report of the ideas that came from a panel he recently chaired on Oulu, Finland where 7 of the world’s most knowledgeable wireless experts participated. Chetan gets my nod as winner of Best Post of the Week.

GoldenSwamp believes a global golden age is dawning because of the emerging connectivity of humankind and of what we know. The connectivity began with the internet and is becoming universal through mobiles. What you are doing in building the mobile future is constructive, important, and wonderful. Sparklers all around !!

Next week the Carnival of the Mobilists moves on to all about See you there!

Carnival of the Mobilists #140


Posted on 8th September 2008 by Judy Breck in Carnival of the Mobilists


This week’s Carnival midway master is Pablo Picasso, a carnival sort of guy who was a master at putting together pieces in new ways to create exciting innovations. His Harlequin is enjoying the CanCan from the iPod feature of his iPhone as we look through this week’s pieces of best mobile blogging.

We start with 15 pieces of wisdom from mobile guru Rudy DeWaele of Rudy gives us 15 Tips To Create Value For Mobile. My favorite: Think global, act viral.

Next, James Cooper at mjelly gives us 12 ways to promote your mobile web site. Since my own focus lately is SEO, I was interested to learn from James that Mobile SEO is right now a “movable feast.

For tips on dealing with the most little pieces of all, take a read at Mobile Twitter Client by Andrew Grill of London Calling.

For browsing the zillions of online bits and pieces, Dennis Bournique at Wap Review gives us his expert analysis of Mobile Browser Tex -UCWEB6

Ram Krishnan at Mobile Broadband Blog describes how mobile broadband can be a significant threat to the old DSL-fixed line business in his post: Deep Dive into Mobile Broadband Growth in Austria.

In Justforkix – Mig33 a new and innovative business model Ajit Jaokar of Open Gardens describes a very unusual revenue model for social networks.

In her post, Personal vs. Shared Spaces, Sarah Lipman at Really Sarah Syndication essays on Mobility = Individuality, and the related mobile phone impact.

The first of two posts about mobile learning is by Mark van’t Hooft of Ubiquitous Thoughts: Has the 1:1 Classroom Era Arrived.

The second post related to learning is at SmartMobs where Roland Piquepaille writes about Sign Language over cell phones in the US.

Turning to recent news, Tsahi Levent-Levi at Radvision analyzes: Are the Olympic Games a Win for Mobile Video?

And addressing the news dominating the USA, Justin Oberman at Mopocket tries to take us Beyond the Mobile Hype in Election ‘08

And finally, with the intriguing post name Oysters, Chickens, Eggs, NFC, Raddedas at Techhype describes a London security caper involving thieves who fish pockets for chips.

fun.jpgThe 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.”

Carnival of the Mobilists #83


Posted on 23rd July 2007 by Judy Breck in Carnival of the Mobilists

, , ,

Emerging from the GoldenSwamp is Carnival of the Mobilists 83 in full swing at Hogwarts. The Epilogue in the final Harry Potter book released this week reveals that Hogwarts must prepare for a new generation of young wizards and witches. We don’t have to be clairvoyant to know mobile learning must be a major ingredient of the education brewed for the new generation at the fabled school. Uncertain of how long the Muggles will procrastinate on letting students learn at school from their mobiles, Hogwarts has already waved a wand to bring the mobile magic of open education resources to students.

The Harry Potter Dictionary defines Muggles as non-magic folks, but this week’s winning posts (believed to be written mostly by Muggles) nonetheless have near magical insight into the increasing sleight of the handheld world.

We begin with my favorite Smart Mobs — our Best Post of the Week — because it is by one of my favorite people and reviews my favorite book so far of 2007. The post title is Everything Is Miscellaneous is important. It is worth taking notice when Howard Rheingold tells us a book is important. The emerging understanding of the digital world that this book explains is particularly applicable to mobile — which is the superior tool so far for operating in the miscellany.

In the spirit of mystery and miscellany, there are no categories this week to the posts that follow. Their ideas overlap, mix — and will give you a strong brew of blog smarts when you read them all.

. . . about mobility “The next big thing is Touch,” C. Enrique Ortiz tells us, which “will enable for a new breed of Touch-based applications, effectively adding a new dimension to mobility and the meaning of click-through.”
VisionMobile Andreas Constantinou tells us Flash Lite’s mobile market penetration is second only to Java and why he calls Adobe strategy for reaching 1 billion devices by 2010, a “ghost platform” strategy.
Xellular Identity Google’s new mobile search service, Mendelsohn Xen tells us, “will challenge mobile operators who profit well from mobile content such as ringtones, wallpapers etc.”
WAP Review “The site works fairly well but has some issues” Dennis explains about ING’s recently launched mobile banking site where customers can do some viewing and transferring using their mobile phones.
Little Springs Design Inc. Discussing “More than just a pretty face,” design gurus Barbara Ballard and Mark Wickersham, provide a post packed with specifics on how to do the right things for UX (user experience).
Write To Right Your Business Opportunity In this post “iPhone: A Great Marketing Pitch,” Cade Krueger points at several innovative positives about the Apple iPhone pitch, and explores this “revolutionizing branding.”
What Japan Thinks Ken Y-N, who blogs on “research Japanese facts and figures through translated opinion polls and surveys” takes eight looks at different reasons why: Apple’s iPhone: Japan will love it, Japan will buy it,
TECHYPE Team blogger Radedeas explains why i-mode outside of Japan was inevitably going to fail: i-RIP. His analysis is detailed and useful background to understanding mobile factors in Japan.
Always On Real-Time Access “New Whitepaper: What is your Patent Portfolio Quotient?” by Chetan Sharma is a detailed overview of an area that is undergoing broad discussion and fundamental change as “the global economy has slowly transformed into a vibrant knowledge economy.”
Matt Croydon::Postneo Matt tells us he sees LG making some of the same mistakes that Motorola has made with the RAZR in a provocative post on fashioning, innovating and running into the ground. You will learn a some cons, and pros too, about Sprint PPC-6700 in this Op-Ed by Robert Auch who owns one of the phones and describes his experience with it.

The next Carnival host is Debi Jones at MobileMessaging2.0. We hope to see your entry there or in another Carnival soon. All participants writing about mobile are welcome – you don’t need a special invitation.
