Shan Appajodu finds his Mojo

Posted by g.e. on September 30, 2006

It was interesting to see the media attention around MojoPac – the PC Virtualization product from RingCube founded by Shan Appajodu – after NEA got interested in it.

With cities being carpetted with WiMax and with Google’s rumoured GDrive on the horizon, i think it will take a killer application to make it a hit product. I mean why do we need to carry it around if we can pull it off the net again. Anyways, anything is fine as long as Shan doesn’t do a Stevie and claims Mojo as his.

Not sure if anyone missed the media buzz around this interesting product from the desi staple. Incase you had, find here VenturBeat’s scoop on this.

India’s 3G roadmap

Posted by g.e. on September 28, 2006

reported in FT:
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) expects the launch of sophisticated third-generation, or so-called 3G services, such as internet access on mobile phones by June next year.

Trai recommended auctioning chunks of spectrum to licensed telecom operators and recommended establishing a National Frequency Management Board to oversee planning for spectrum availability.

TRAI on Thursday allocated chunks of spectrum at 450 MHz, 800 MHz and 2.1 GHz for 3G services. It has specified 200 MHz of spectrum for broadband wireless access.

India last month overtook China as the world’s fastest-growing mobile phone market in terms of monthly net additions. It added 5.9m new subscribers last month, bringing total numbers to more than 123m. By comparison, China added 5.19m subscribers in August.
