A lot of times, the real fun for the year starts after the sunny summer vacations ... because September is the kick off of awards season! As proof, Instant Mobilizer has just been shortlisted in two different award competitions.
This past year, a lot of engineering work went into the launch of Instant Mobilizer, and we've seen that the efforts are paying off in use of the service as well as in recognition of the technical excellence of the service.
On 10 September, we find out if Instant Mobilizer will be named as "Best Technology Innovation" in Visiongain’s Mobile Content Awards 2009. The others on the Best Technology Innovation shortlist are RIM (Blackberry), Novarra, Wapple, and Acision.
A little later in the season, on 25 November, dotMobi will discover whether or not we've won "Best New Service" at Total Telecom's World Communication Awards 2009. For this one, we’re in competition with Banglalink, BT, TeliaSonera International and Zain.
Fingers crossed. Wish us luck!
Addendum on 10 September 2009: Just found out that dotMobi's Instant Mobilizer took the silver prize in the "Best Technology Innovation" category at Visiongain’s Mobile Content Awards 2009.
