UN-Cooperated Award honours product from India.
The mobile phone is about to replace your travel guide, your remote control and your printed newspaper. It takes you on a magical tour through your next-door park, allows you to become a reporter yourself or helps you trading your goods. It even reminds you to take your pills – should you ever get sick although your mobile weather forecast warned you of the cold front coming in. What a mobile phone can do today is now showcased and decorated by an international award. The “World Summit Award Mobile” has chosen the best mobile contents and applications out of over 400 nominations from nearly 100 countries. Amongst the winners is also DRONA – Mobile Learning Management System from India.
When the winning projects will be presented this December at the Winners Conference and Gala in Abu Dhabi, Deltecs Team from India will be called on stage aside with the best producers from all over the world: DRONA, India’s only purpose built development and delivery platform for mobile learning.

Since Content is always national – due to language barriers, legal restrictions as well as cultural differences – people often do not see what is going on in other countries. The WSA aims to make people see that great ideas should be recognized, no matter where they come from.
Thus, the winners were selected a multi-step evaluation process lead by eminent national experts, an independent selection committee or an open national contest. The Grand Jury of 20 internationally recognized experts selected the global winners from the national finalists. “The Jury members hail from all continents and they have rich and diverse professional backgrounds as leaders in the creative industries, telecommunication, advertising, media and research. The jury was highly responsive to cultural differences and they worked to award visible great m-content, no matter whether it originated in Canada or Mexico, Guatemala or Slovenia”, explains WSA Chairman Prof. Peter A. Bruck. “This way WSA ensures that the events in Abu Dhabi will present what is top on the global plane.”
All winning projects will be presented to the world at the UN-cooperated WSA-mobile Winners’ Gala, Conference and Expo in Abu Dhabi from 5 to 8 December. As the world’s first event focused on excellence in mobile content and applications it will also offer a chance to the winners and to anyone involved in this field to network and to be updated on what is the state-of-the-art.
