The Mobile Marketing Association has announced the winners of the 7th Annual Global Mobile Marketing Awards for Innovation, Creativity and Leadership; awards that are now known (and trademarked) as The Smarties.
There are a total of 56 winners of awards designed to recognise the best mobile marketing from around the world.
This week's edition of The Fonecast covers a wide range of subjects from within the mobile industry. We start with Symbian before moving on to 'white space' spectrum trials involving BT, the BBC, Samsung and Nokia. There's also time to talk about funding, favourite apps, legal action and some notable moves.
