Brief summary: the mobile phone market is highly fragmented: multi-mobile phone manufacturers with different platforms (Nokia, i-Phone, Google Android..), multi-carriers. This makes it almost impossible at the moment to find a horinzontal solution. Niche markets have to be selected first.
Many innovations go into the direction of geo-location, integration of social networks, widgets and applications.
Major French carriers have developed programs to help innovative companies and find new segments/offers to deliver.
