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!

Hi, just wanted to update our blog as it has been a while since my last posting! Deirdre and Grace have been busy writing posts about our company and what we have been doing, which has been crazy busy the last few months! All good though, keeps us on our toes!

On a recent trip to North America I was really impressed by the level of support and passion in Web2.0 but also in Mobile Internet usage, I think you guys use the Internet on your phones a lot more than us Europeans! Which is good for Zinadoo, of course, as USA is our largest and most active market today! When I think back 18 months to when we first launched Zinadoo Site Creation tools, we were engaging with the market and a lot of our time was spent educating users on the benefits of the mobile Internet – things like poor download speeds, weak search, multiple borwsers, high data charges and lack of content….the usual barriers out there! BUT we have seen a dramatic improvement in all of these areas, and now,  in our market and customer engagement we are not spending as much time educating but have now moved onto a different level. How can a business benefit from having a mobile Internet presence, and what can we do to help them promote and market themselves using this medium!

We are doing some interesting work with the Dotmobi Mobile Advisory group as well around mobile advertising and mobile standards compliance, and planning on a big iLoveMobileWeb campaign as well which is very exciting. So many great events coming up over the summer and Nubiq are going to be driving promotion of these events over the Mobile Internet! Should be fun!
