Podcast - 12th February 2014
After catching up with last week's Microsoft announcement about new CEO Satya Nadella, we go on to talk about big changes for Brightstar and Sony as well.
There's also mobile payment news from MasterCard and Weve, some patent agreements, a warning about second-hand smartphone sales, a forecast of mobile data growth and a report about app developers.
The Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) and Power Matters Alliance (PMA) have signed an agreement aimed at enabling these wireless power standards to work with each other.
PMA has previously focussed on inductive wireless charging technology, with installations in some Starbucks and McDonald’s stores, while A4WP - which uses the Rezence brand - has developed a magnetic resonance technical specification.
