MobileMonday in BCN: Mobile Web 2.0

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007

Yesterday I was at the MobileMonday Barcelona event. Three speakers talked about ‘Mobile Web 2.0′:

Patrick Lord introduced his company’s main application – MobiLuck. It’s a short range wireless messaging application. MobiLuck allows you to detect all Bluetooth devices around you and to store a mini-profile in your Bluetooth name. The mini-profile can include for example your nickname, gender, age and phone number (dating profile) or your first name, last name, company and phone number (business profile). Your mini-profile is detected instantly by other MobiLuck users. You can then send a message (or your picture or your business card) with your mobile in a few clicks, for free, with no need of the recipient’s phone number.

Lucia Garate (of Vodafone R&D, Madrid) presented Vodafone Betavine that aims to help developers create new and innovative services using mobile communications APIs.

Ajit Jaokar (London) listed some of the concepts behind its latest book (Mobile 2.0).
