Are you an Android user who’s tired of feeling left out when it comes to emoticons? Do you see little squares or rectangles in Streamzoo comments and wonder what your iOS friends are saying to you?
Have no fear, emoticons for Android are here! Just like you, we here at Streamzoo wanted in on the fun too. So, to fix the problem, we have implemented our own set using the latest Unicode standards.
We are to announce that emoticons are now available in Streamzoo through Android, iPhone, and the Web!
Yes, that’s correct. It’s not a horse-powered mobile, but a mobile-powered horse! At this year’s Mobile World Congress, Chinese phone manufacturer Huawei put up a huge horse -shaped sculpture made entirely of their new, quad-core, super fast Ascend series phones.
Last week I attended the Mobile World Congress (www.mobileworldcongress.com) in Barcelona.
MWC is one of the largest conferences around the whole mobile phone ecosystem. All sectors are represented, from the cell tower guys to mobile applications developers. It was estimated that this year more than 60,000 people attended the event. The show is held every year in Barcelona, Spain. It takes up a whole hillside with huge stalls from the major vendors.
This year companies from China & South Korea had a major push with their infrastructure and end-user products (Samsung, LG, Huawei, ZTE). Historically a leader in this space but currently struggling to gain momentum, Nokia also used this platform to announce and showcase more phones based on Windows Mobile (Lumia product line). Apple as usual was not present at this event. They never go to any event except their own – has been the policy for a long time.
My impression was that everyone wants to the own the end user. With Android, since all phones look the same, one of the strategies is that companies are moving towards having their own app stores to differentiate – hardware vendors and carriers have all built up developer programs and customized app stores. Some of them offer special API access or distribution channels to lure app developers to make versions specific to their app store.
I got a chance to try out and demo Streamzoo on a number of different Android platforms – Samsung, Sony Ericssson, ZTE, HTC, LG, Asus, Acer, Dell. Samsung Galaxy series is a great line of devices. I was also impressed with Android devices from Huawei – sleek design, awesome display & super fast response (quad-core CPU).
Google had a large presence with the Android developers forum. The main attraction was display booths with devices and information about Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
I met with a number of companies for interesting partnership discussions. Also one of my goals was to meet Streamzoo users in Barcelona. @PhantomBCN showed me around town and took me to hidden, non-touristy places. It was awesome! See some of my experiences here.

It was a fun and productive week! Look forward to MWC 2013!!
