The Week in Mobile: Ep. 7 – RIM Rush

This week on ‘The Week in Mobile’, I return from GDC in San Francisco and report on the growth of mobile gaming attitudes at the show. There was a serious lack of interest in BlackBerry by game developers, why? Is RIM taking BBM cross-platform? We debate if this is good or bad. The rumours keep flying about Android apps on PlayBook but is that really a good thing for RIM? The iPad 2 fails to steal the GDC thunder but will it still have a major impact on the tablet space? All this and more on This Week in Mobile.

Pro podcast tip: listen at 2x speed if you find the hour too long! It’s still easy to follow along at that speed.
