MSG is expanding in all directions and part of this new-look and new focus is to showcase the thought leadership and commentary that is a well-known trademark of the Carnival of Mobilists . From mobile pundits (Tomi Ahonen and Alan Moore) at Communities Dominate Brands, to mobile industry strategist Rudy De Waele, to Andrew Grill, mobile advertising evangelist, the Carnival brings together the best posts of the week from bloggers who walk the talk.
This week’s host is Punchcut, a San Francisco-based UI design company focused on strategy, user experience design and development for the digital lifestyle. Carnival of Mobilists #184 comes from the company blog Idlemode. Contributions this week (from Tomi Ahonen, Dennis Bournique, Judy Breck, Tam Hanna, Volker Hirsch, Holly Kolman, Sanjeet Matharu, C. Enrique Ortiz and Howard Rheingold) cover an eclectic mix of topics including app store fragmentation and frustration, Palm Pre’s real market share and a look at how researchers leverage portable, camera-enabled mobile phones for diagnostic imaging and telemedicine.
MSG’s contribution this week was an in-depth analysis of Blyk’s partnership model and its first deal with Vodafone Netherlands.
Next week’s Carnival will be hosted by Eric Chan at Mobileslate.
