Mobile World Congress in Barcelona attracts 55,000 communications technology geeks each year and it’s the place where companies often make announcements or show off new toys.

Our own CTO Hugh Bradlow gave a keynote address yesterday to the Mobile Innovation Grand Prix and we’ve got hold of his presentation to share with you all:

In other exciting Telstra news, we announced the completion of the upgrade to our Next G™ HSPA+ network with Dual Carrier technology and unveiled the first wireless broadband device to capitalise on the new record-breaking speeds. Stay tuned – more announcements to come!
