Like many in the industry, I am an avid follower of Andreas Constantinou’s blog visionmobile. And hence, it’s no surprise that he comes up with an excellently edited carnival on his blog. Don’t miss carnival of the mobilists at Andreas Constantinou’s blog .. .
Many great links and insights.
My post Widget once run anywhere – Opera Widgets on new 3G handsets from KDDI makes it on Andreas’s list as well and Andreas captures the sentiment in :
Ajit makes a thought-provoking observation when he says “widgets are a much more likely driver of client side service convergence”; in other words if operators can ensure that the same widgets are available across handsets and terminals, they have a better chance of delivering service convergence and reducing churn.
And interestingly a second post about Opera also made it to the carnival(Dennis Bournique at WAP Review on how to keep your web surfing activity synchronized across all the browsers you use, on multiple desktops and mobile devices, even if they aren’t all running Opera browsers.).
It’s nice to see some of Opera’s good work on the convergence / integration space being recognised.
Thanks Andreas for this great post
