Vandaag was de uitrijking van de jaarlijkse Global Mobile Awards. De Oscars van de mobiele industrie. In acht categorien, met vele subcategorien waren telkens 5 genomineerden. 

Dit zorgde voor een uitpuilend auditorium. Ik mocht op de eerste rij plaatsnemen. Niet alleen als vertegenwoordiger van MobileCowboys, maar ook namens mijn werkgever Logica die was genomineerd. De drie "hoofdprijzen" werden s'avonds tijdens het gala uitgereikt:

Beste Mobile Device: Apple iPhone4
