LONDON Mobile TV is set to be the most important topic under the spotlight at the 3GSM World Congress, scheduled to open in Barcelona, Spain, on Monday (Feb. 12), according to an EE Times Europe poll.
The poll conducted over the weeks before the congress found that 38 percent of those who voted said that mobile TV would have the most impact at the event, while 31 percent said fourth generation communications would lead the way. Some 30 percent said that Apple's iPhone, launched a few weeks ago, would have the most impact in Barcelona.
The vote is a "straw poll" with a self-selecting audience, but to judge by the number of mobile television announcements made by companies this week, the voters have their finger on the pulse.
Meanwhile we have initiated another poll. We re asking readers to predict which technology sectors will present the biggest challenge in the embedded engineering sector. If readers would like to add their vote the readers' poll, please see the left hand column of the EE Times Europe home page.
