Mobile Startups Singled-out For Accolades In Barcelona

Every year there’s an “off broadway” event during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona which is always way more focused around startups and new applications. Although MWC has this year created an entire, echoing hall called AppsPlanet, the Mobile Premier Awards organised by dotopen usually surfaces most of the best new apps largely because of its symbiotic relationship with the 75 MobileMonday chapters worldwide and mobile entrepreneurs, and because its free to enter for startups. This year pulled in 600 start up submissions globally. Back at MWC you only find mobile apps that can afford stands, like, er, Skype. Here’s a run down of the winners at the MPAs today.
