We were featured on Yahoo News Bytes, and you can check it out in the video above.

Pamela Woon, a an award-winning producer & Emmy-nominated host attended the “geek fest”, as she calls the Mobile Monday(MoMo) out in the park.

I (Daniel Torres) from Nimbuzz USA, had the opportunity to speak to Pamela and explained to her everything Nimbuzz could do for her phone and her pocket. ;)

Now she refers to Nimbuzz as “the latest competition for Skype”!

In the video you can also see great folks such as Will Park from IntoMobile introducing Soundhound, Mario Tapia organizer of Mobile Monday, Bruce Jones from Getjar, and other cool apps like FootFeed.

We’d like to thank Pamela and the Yahoo Team for this great coverage, and everyone who came out that cold day to support all the developers from the Silicon Valley.

Mobile communication in 2010 and beyond!

July 28th, 2010

Cut trough

Here is something to think about: How do you define mobile communication in 2010 and where should it go form here?

Is it calling, text messaging, leaving a post on a wall, sharing or viewing some pictures or … maybe  a little bit of everything?

There is a lot of noise around mobile VoIP and openness, meaning the ability to make internet calls on the mobile and the fact that there are many solutions in this space, some of which are not compatible with each other.  Following is our take on the situation and where we see ourselves in creating the future of mobile VoIP and next generation mobile communications.

Let’s start with the basics!

In case you missed it, we wanted to share some videos and interviews of the Nimbuzz team in the news.

First and foremost there was Lunch at Piero’s, during which I was inteviewed by Pat Meier Johnston (in the above video).

Shortly after, our podcast with Peggy from Mobile Search Groove went live: Nimble Nimbuzz Sharpens Focus On Context & Community; Will It Go One Better Than Foursquare & Co.? We recorded this quite some time ago, but the figures are new, so it should be interesting for you guys to listen in and find out more about the Nimbuzz planing.

We were also quoted in Entrepreneur Magazine, where GetJar Founder Ilja Laurs was interviewed about the state of the app economy, the best mobile apps, the most successful applications on GetJar ;) and his vision of the mobile ecosytem.
