  • Tegic Improves on T9: Tegic Communications, part of AOL, announced its XT9 Mobile Interface 2.0, XT9 2.0 is supposed to make text messaging less annoying than it is now.
  • Funambol shows open-source push e-mail: Funambol is showing the first open-source push e-mail service for mobile devices. Its designed to run with J2ME and Linux mobile devices.
  • Networks in Motion expands to Europe: U.S.-based Networks In Motion, a provider of navigation and location based services, is announcing its move into Europe.
  • Sybase 365 provides RSS: Virgin Mobile and Sybase 365 agree to provide RSS services to Virgin customers in the United States. The messages are delivered as SMS messages to mobile devices. There are actually a lot of other announcements at 3GSM, but I decided to shield you from the ones that announce things like advertising penetration and new carrier deals in central Europe. Instead, think about Barcelona, that city of art and Catalonian culture, and imagine you were there, instead of here, freezing while you wait for the next slushfall.
