All Things Digital's D:Dive Into Mobile conference and European Internet event, LeWeb, brought in brass from Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT), Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK), Palm Inc. , BlackBerry , and others. Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) also stole some spotlight this week with its own event for the Chrome unveiling.
Here's some of the highlights and lowlights from the talks:
