Linus talked briefly about the big rise, finally in mobile data by quoting info from TeliaSonera who has reported a 430% growth. This gives though a skewed impression, most of that growth has come from the USB dongles for "Turbo 3G" laptop modems but later we could see that statistics from TeliaSonera's introduction of iPhone.
Mobil Business is also publishing a very good mobile phone and services magazine. Interesting to see that they just like most PC Magazines started performance benchmark testing to get score values for both performance as well as real live test on battery lifetime. Battery lifetime varies wildly on 3G phone from just under 3h to over 8hrs. Good to know if you are hunting for a useful phone for continuous internet use. Recent issue includes good tests of all new (except BlackBerry Storm) 3G touch phones.
More from this event will come in newer blog posts from Thomas Lidforss International
