We are the Champions!

Well I’m back in Ireland after a great week celebrating at the Mobile Internet World Conference and exhibition in Boston.  Despite the freezing weather, it was a fantastic week, with great speakers and interesting exhibitors, the mobile Internet view is different on the other side of the pond for sure, but it’s a very exciting market and one we’re ready to dive into!

I was in Boston to collect our 1st place award on behalf of the Nubiq team at the Mobile Internet World Innovation 2008 Awards ceremony,  ‘Zinadoo’ won the most Innovative Mobile Internet Consumer Deployment Award. There were 4 categories overall, with 60 entries in this category alone!, so you can imagine it was a real honour for Zinadoo to be chosen as overall winner!

To be honest, the award is great recognition for all of the services and  features we have added to Zinadoo, and, as pioneering leaders we have to contend with many  copy cat competitors who come up with similar branding and positioning! (If I see the 1,2,3 steps to a mobile website, no technical skills required, FREE etc etc…once more….arrggh!) Zinadoo have been there, done that, and basically printed up the t-shirts…!! Zinadoo is the best in it’s class, which was recognised by us snatching 1st place at the awards!  I can’t help but mention an amusing incident at the Exhibition,   I did notice a nice yellow banner from our friends in India proclaiming to be “the first ever service to let users build a mobile website from their mobile phone”!  Am afraid they are about 1 year too late with the claim…. Zinadoo actually launched this capability well over a year ago (see http://www.nubiq.com/news.html) maybe that is why they got the runner up prize ??!

Being the first means the Nubiq team are constantly innovating, continuously releasing more compelling products,  keeping our offering fresh and competitive to stay the number one choice for users,  I  think this is a perfect opportunity to give a plug for our new Zinadoo release due out next week,   this will contain  some exciting NEW messaging features ,  so watch this space guys!!

I must dig out some pics from the event and my trip. I did manage to squeeze in a Duck Tour, my second one in over ten years! It’s still a great city, loads to see and do, and of course reveling in the Zinadoo win had me smiling even on the 6 hour flight back to Ireland……  Go Team Go!
