Mobile World Congress or 3GSM?

It seems appropriate that the European mobile event of the year has renamed itself considering the on going evolution to 4G via WiMAX, LTE (3 ¾G?), 3.5G and now E2DGE (I made that one up).

3G is so last century.

There were glimpses of what may be with us in 08, but no buzz or wow.

There will be more announcements through the year, but for the biggest mobile PR event of the year there was little to inspire customers to upgrade.

This can only be bad for the manufacturers.

In fact it was déjà vu 3GSM 2007.
