MWC2014: Ericsson and Facebook Innovation Lab
There is plenty of interesting news and comment being generated as a result of Mobile World Congress this year. A major highlight has been the announcement that Ericsson and Facebook will be collaborating on an 'innovation lab' to support the work of internet.org - a company who's aim is to bring the internet to emerging markets and countries, to expand its usage and broaden its reach.
This new venture aims to optimise devices and applications across the board for the next five billion users of the internet, and utilises Ericsson's mobile knowledge - combined with Facebook's ability to enhance developer access to network environments - come together to make this dream of internet 'for the world' a reality.
There's more on the story over at The Drum, and more to come from Battenhall on all the events at Mobile World Congress.
