Q.  Tell us a bit about yourself:

I moved to London back in 2005, having grown up in Boston, and I’ve been involved in journalism ever since graduating from Goldsmiths College. I worked my way around a fair few local newspapers learning the art before entering the tech journalism world roughly two years ago and joining ITProPortal.com as an intern. Since then, I’ve risen to senior writer and am looking forward to the future.

Q. Tell us a little bit about the title you write for and their interest in mobile technology: 

Mobile became my primary beat pretty much as soon as I joined ITProPortal.com and I’ve been developing and refining my knowledge ever since. I’ve learned from some great people and am now enjoying tutoring some our younger writers in the finer points of processors, displays, and operating systems. We try to position ourselves as a unique proposition, covering mobile from a more business, enterprise, and IT relevant perspective than some of our competitiors.

Q. What’s hot in mobiles and telecoms this year?

There’s a number of key trends in mobile this year, including the rise and rise of the phablet, but what’s potentially the game changer is wearable tech. In my opinion, no one has really got it right yet, but it is likely to happen. The key for me will be when the style element begins to match the functionality – for example, when I can have Google Glass-like features built into my Ray-Bans. The features are developing quickly and hopefully the fashion element will catch up soon. Read the rest of this entry ?

Interview with Mats Sjödin, Editor in Chief, Telecom News & TV News (Sweden)

March 14, 2013

By @Rose_at_O, @Olivia_at_O

Mats Sjodin Editor Telekom Nyheterna

Mats is the Editor in Chief of Swedish publications Telekomnyheterna and TV-Nyheterna, or Telecom News and TV News.

Q.  Tell us a bit about yourself: 

From being the silent boy who had to leave school because of my poor results, I have had a long journey. Nowadays I run two newsletters for professionals within the telecom and TV industry in Sweden. I also arrange seminars and networking meetings in these two businesses. In practice this means that I’m working hard to build relationships with important people in both industries – to be first with the best news, of course, but also to find the right speakers for the right events and to attract more people to attend our events. When not working I love fishing, hunting and of course sporting. Something I am particularly proud of is that I made The Swedish Classic 2011. That means I skied Vasaloppet (90 km), biked Vättern runt (300 km), swim Vansbrosimmet (3 km in a really cold river) and run Lidingöloppet (a very hilly 30 km race), in one year.

Q. Tell us a little bit about the titles you write for and their interest in mobile technology: 

Telekomnyheterna is Sweden’s leading news source for decision makers within the telecom industry. We focus on the operators’ businesses, and from that perspective we try to cover Read the rest of this entry ?
