The beginning was bit uncertain, convictions had little doubts but the journey so far has been encouraging as well as interesting. The mBillionth Awards in 2010, launch year, and now in 3rd year it is turning into a pool of m-knowledge, m-innovations as well as m-strategies and m-thinking with minds from India and South Asia all set to prove that mobile is next m-powering tool in one of the most populous as well as happening region. As the curtain of mBillionth 2012 closes on July 21st, we are all set to celebrate and enjoy once again bright ideas, innovations, practices, robust partnerships through our collective zeal and efforts.
It is a collective pride and satisfaction that mBillionth could provide a dynamic forum and ecosystem for the mobile and telecom stakeholders in South Asia to experience, share and exchange ideas, innovations and partnerships, all towards meeting governance, development and citizen services needs for more than 1.5 billion population in the region. The support of all stakeholders, the wider mobile community has gone into this: creating a regional platform to sit, talk, share, exchange and learn from each other. The joint efforts and role playing brings us in 2012 more than what we could have imagined in last years: mBillionth Mobile & Telecom Congress 2012, Domain Experts interactive session, Mobile South Asia EXPO, Vodafone Mobiles for Good Grant Fund Prize 2012, and mBillionth South Asia Mobile Awards 2012 â€“ all on July 21, 2012.
Not to forget the half a dozen parallel sessions and tracks that are having brain storming talks and presentations on various aspects of mobile for development in India and other South Asian countries.
