Mobile messaging and data management systems vendor Acision has bagged an additional US$100 million in new funding from its existing investors to "build on its position in the mobile data market, while continuing to provide innovative solutions which enable mobile operators to control, optimise and monetise mobile data traffic." The UK-based company, which has just launched its mobile video optimization platform, says it has scored a number of "strategic wins" with operators in Canada, India, Pakistan, and Eastern Europe in recent months.

How low can you go? In the case of UK mobile operator Three UK , you can now go as low as £2.00 ($3.20) a day -- for mobile broadband that is. Its new Pay Per Day deal offers 500 Mbytes of data, equating, says 3, to five hours of Internet browsing or 500 emails. Not so much "all you can eat" as "all you can fit in a small lunchbox."
