Novarra announced that GSMA has nominated its VisionTM Widgets & Mobile Content Framework for the Most Innovative Value Added Service (VAS) Platform in the EMEA leg of the 2010 Mobile Innovation Grand Prix competition. This prestigious award recognizes the leaders in the development of innovative mobile products. During the EMEA event, ten companies from around the world will compete in five categories, with two overall winners awarded a trip to compete for the Mobile Innovation Grand Prix Cup at Mobile World Congress, February 2010.
Novarra’s Vision Widgets & Mobile Content Framework is built upon the company’s core mobile internet platform and browser which removes barriers faced by operators and mobile content developers deploying rich internet content and widgets. Widgets can be written and published once and delivered with a consistent experience to handsets of many capabilities, even those without a native widget runtime environment, thus overcoming fragmentation challenges and ensuring mass-market reach. Novarra widgets drive consumer adoption and every day usage, allowing users to transfer PC web habits to mobile, personalize and share content.
“Novarra has been at the forefront of driving mobile internet innovation and monetization for the last decade,” comments Randy Cavaiani, vice president, marketing. “The VisionTM browser and platform optimizes the mobile web experience across all devices, from smartphones to feature phones to netbooks and supports all content that makes up the fabric of the internet including streaming video, Flash, advertising and now widgets.”
“We are thrilled with the number of high-quality entries we received for the EMEA leg of the 2010 Mobile Innovation Grand Prix competition,” said Bill Gajda, chief commercial officer at the GSMA. “This event provides a rare opportunity for innovators to pitch new technologies to senior executives within the mobile operator, IT and venture capital communities.”
