"Why did we call this press conference. What do we want to talk about?" said Alexander Izosimov, CEO of Russia's VimpelCom and chairman of the GSMA, in a bid to summarise the content of a press conference organised by the GSMA at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona yesterday.
Little did he know that those of us in the audience were thinking much the same thing.
But, sadly, when it comes to having nothing much to say but saying it anyway, the GSMA isn't the only culprit at this year's event.
Truly interesting presentations and press conferences have been very thin on the ground, leaving us all a little nonplussed, and wondering 'why are we here, anyway?'
Nonetheless, we at Total Telecom have done our best to wring the most exciting droplets of news and commentary for you, so check out the website for all the latest from MWC 2009. There you will find details of Telstra's move to 21-Mbps mobile broadband, Android announcements from Vodafone and Huawei, and the GSMA's new initiative to create a universal mobile phone charger, likely to be shipping with the majority of handsets by 2012.
