Rating: Women and mature users dominate m-commerce
A somewhat startling finding from the latest quarterly report on the mobile advertising industry from BuzzCity is that in the UK, ad impressions are still dominated by BlackBerry (with 69 per cent).

Now we have Everything Everywhere (formerly Orange/T-Mobile UK) in the UK proving that the exact opposite is true with mobile technology. They are proposing to use spectrum supposedly provided for 2G to offer 4G services. It’s a harsh business climate out that and GoMo News doesn’t blame Everything Everywhere at all for trying to get a commercial advantage over its rivals. It does, however, make something of a mockery of the whole mobile industry when yet another yawning chasm is opened in the quest for a truly global telephone network which would actually work.
