Looking at Africa for the Next Big Thing in Mobile

This week we look at mobile innovation in Africa and the Middle East, scrutinize the Google-Motorola Mobility marriage, get more organized, talk MVPs and announce a new newsletter. It's all in this week's edition of Research Rewind.

  • What's the frontier for mobile innovation? Look no further than Africa and the Middle East, notes Pyramid Analyst Ronda Zelezny-Green in her latest AME Insider, "Three Steps to Accelerate Mobile Innovation in Africa and the Middle East."

  • The news this week that Google plans to buy Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion dominated the telecom headlines. But was it a good move for Google, its Android partners or the industry as a whole? Pyramid Senior Analyst Stela Bokun provides the answer in her latest Pyramid Point blog post, "Google-Motorola: Everyone Gets a Trophy." (See all Light Reading's Moto-Google news here.)

  • When Peter Gabriel sang about "fruitless searches," it was romantic. But if you're trying to find a report you need, it can be downright infuriating. Now Pyramid has made it easier than ever to locate the reports you need across three broad thematic areas. Just choose Broadband & Media, Devices or Digital Content & Applications, and you'll instantly see all our research in those areas.

  • You don't need to play sports to be an MVP. Become a Heavy Reading MVP to get exclusive previews of Heavy Reading's upcoming research, discounts on research purchases -- and even the chance to earn free reports and free passes to Heavy Reading events.

  • Coming soon: Matt's Mentions, a regular email newsletter with the top telecom news from around the Web, curated by yours truly and organized by region. Watch this space for news about how you can get the same telecom newsletter Pyramid and Heavy Reading analysts have come to rely on in their own work.

That's Research Rewind for this week. Until next Friday, we'll see you online at Pyramid Research and Heavy Reading. May the telecom be with you!
