This week’s Carnival of the mobilists is over at

Post of the week is from Carnival Regular Igor Faletski at Mobscure who has some real data from a recent project showing some massive growth in a mobile internet service, and posing the thought that in terms of mobile service delivery, SMS is dying, as a result of the growth of the mobile web.  Always nice to see people sharing data like this so well deserving of the post of the month. 

Rudy De Waele has posted an agenda for the upcoming Mobile 2.0 conference in San Francisco.  This is an event that you only hear brilliant things about – the attendee list already looks amazing and Rudy has posted some fantastic looking sessions ranging from mobile advertising to business models to VC investment in mobile.  Rudy says that Mobilists can apply for a free ticket to the event if they contact him via his blog

James also tips his hat to our “first class reportage from the MMA conference in Budapest” summarizing the key points from a session involving the head of mobile for P&G – loads of good insights for anyone interested in mobile marketing and advertising, and particularly in their role in the emerging markets. 

For anyone who is working in mobile, this week’s carnival is worth a close study.
