Heading to Mobile World Congress? Still trying to decide which companies to meet? In need of some light relief from your schedule-building?
Well, we've got a new game to play at this year's show: Who's got the most laughable company name?
The clear leader currently is Dat-uh.
It's business is industrial IoT, an incredibly important topic as Light Reading has noted. But dat's not a name that reflects the importance of those developments… (See Industrie 4.0: Rebooting Germany and US Giants Carve Out Role in the Industrial IoT .)
And then there's Appy Pie. All that name has done is make me hungry (and not for more information about this DIY app builder platform).
Tongyu Communications is a perennial classic at MWC -- I have had my picture taken more than once in front of its stand.
As for SlashMobility… well, the potential for stifled giggles will depend on whether you are British.
Any more? Please share on the message boards below. And here's a few that some idiot prepared earlier: Top 20 Terrible Company Names.
