by User Not Found | 3月 11, 2013

With MWC now well and truly over our post mortem can begin. With so much activity going on, the Insight, called "Mobile Money, Location Based Services, & HTML5 Shine at MMW 2013," from the Wireless Media Strategies team focuses on a handful of key non-device related industry announcements and initiatives which were unveiled at MWC 2013:

  • We put Samsung’s global alliance with VISA into context – what does it mean for Samsung’s operator partners and for Google, both of which aim to offer competing NFC payment services?
  • How is Nokia executing on its strategy to grow HERE as a horizontal platform spanning competitor WP8 devices and other operating systems (OSs)? 
  • The new OpenAPI Exchange initiatives from the GSMA – will it breathe new life into operator ambitions to participate in the evolving apps space, or is it too little too late?
  • The growing support behind Mozilla FireFox OS provides a welcome boost to the HTML5 apps ecosystem, but is it sufficient to overcome some of the inherent challenges facing the technology?

This Insight compliments the webinar and daily MWC blogs published by Strategy Analytics' devices team.
