MoMo Turku Gets Nokia Mobile-TV Preview

MoMo Turku Gets Nokia Mobile-TV Preview

Turku is joining the MobileMonday family on November 28. The meeting will take place at Brewery Restaurant School. Turku ICT CEO Jaakko Kuosmanen will open the evening. Speakers will be Abo Akademi’s Christer Carlsson and Nokia’s Ari Ikonen. Turku to run Momos bi-monthly.

Ari Ikonen, Sr. Technology Manager at Nokia Ventures, will be introducing the first commercial technology version DVB-H mobile-tv. Nokia announced earlier this month in Barcelona next generation mobile-tv-device, the N92 and version 3.0 of Mobile Broadcast Solution, a service and management systems for mobile tv-broadcasters. Ikonen thinks that this is the first time the commercial version has been displayed outside laboratories, not counting Nokia Mobility Conference in Barcelona. Early versions of the service system are still in use several test networks, including Helsinki.

Bonenkai Report: i-Pod’s for All

Mobile Monday Tokyo’s “Super-Deluxe Bonenkai” hosted over 300 people at a swank, underground Roppongi niteclub on 14 November. For this year-end party event, we had no presentations, opting instead for a casual evening of business-card swapping and mobile networking. It was great to see such a wide mix of people from all corners of Tokyo’s wireless community attending for a super evening of cool jazz and, er… ‘fine’ wine.

It was also great to see high-profile attendees from the wireless carriers, ad agencies, several embassies and the hardware, application and content provider ecosystem in the house — plus at least a few VCs.

We had hoped to provide a free i-Pod shuffle to everyone, but the price-tag proved to be a bit steep… and with Santa being too busy to visit all the good mobile boys & girls, we settled for doing a business card draw instead. Congrats to the winners from Ante Music, Dai Job and Ubit…!!!

The next MoMo is in planning for mid-January 2006; we’ll send a notice to all registered MoMo members as well as post details here as soon as we have them. Meanwhile, have a super holidaze season.. =@_@=

Mobile Monday London Launch Event

The first Mobile Monday was held in London on 7 November packed the house at Vodafone’s Strand offices with presentations from organizer Dan Appelquist of Vodafone, Richard Jelbert from mTrack, Dennis Hettema from OP3/Shotcode and Chris Yanda from the BBC.

Excerpt from

London’s mobile industry now has a monthly get together thanks to Mobile Monday London, aka momo london. I went to the first meeting Monday evening, which I enjoyed.

There was a good bit of general discussion between speakers and audience. A common concern of the group that emerged was the difficulties of getting customers “into” a mobile product, in terms of the platform incompatibilities, awkwardness of user experience, and legal and other obstacles that make barriers for users to register with and start using a mobile product and service. Since this is something that affects and requires all three of the types of mobile animals that came to this event to work together to solve, Mobile Monday has the potential to be quite interesting.

Congrats and Welcome Aboard.. 😎

Meanwhile, the Silicon Valley October Mobile Monday was a “Barn Buster,” according to organizer Russell Beattie, with over 300 people packed into Google’s auditorium to hear the panel and see the demos. The meeting was broadcast over Userplan’s Flash-based group chat. “About 20 people used the chat and listened to the audio, video was bit choppy, but it worked pretty well,” according to Beattie.

It was yet another stellar MoMo turn out at Zest Cantina with almost 250 folks heading down for a few margaritas to take in the evening’s feature presentations from Hiro Higashiyama from G-Mode and Akio Tanaka and Dwight Rodgers from Macromedia. We got fantastic overviews on how Java games have started to gain traction in global markets while FlashLite and the new FlashCast service (branded i-Channel on DoCoMo) are pushing mobile data to the next level here in Japan.

We will be making the announcement for our next event here sometime soon – mark 14 November on your schedule – and meanwhile we’ll get the most recent presentations online for everyone ASAP.
