Streaming Music, We Don’t Want No Drama!

POSTED BY Steffen Sorrell
6 days before launch, the anticipation for Apple Music’s launch has reached fever point amongst the tech media, with some publications pitching the smartphone behemoth as a modern-day Goliath versus Spotify’s David.

Operators Must Step Up Direct Billing Marketing Activity

POSTED BY Windsor Holden
I am, you may have noticed from blogs past, rather an evangelist for carrier billing. It offers benefits to stakeholders across the value chain: operators, merchants, storefronts, consumers. It enables the monetisation of unbanked and underbanked consumers. It allows for the monetisation of content beyond the mobile handset – on tablets, connected TVs, laptops, desktops and games consoles. It results in markedly higher conversion rates than credit card billing.

Huawei P8 and B2 Talkband Review

POSTED BY James Moar
The P8 is a very good quality piece of Android hardware, which sells itself well as a premium media consumption device. It doesn’t have too much to offer to tempt you away from other premium Android devices, as the unique features aren’t particularly useful and the sound quality may not be something that is used too much (headphones render it moot). The default app layout is helpful to heavy Google users, but presents alternatives too.
