All well and good, but local mobile content researcher Oscar Westlund presented some sobering stats – despite handset makers’ lofty promises for multimedia devices, mobile news consumption is still painfully small. Looks like the phone is still just a phone, he suggested. Watch the five videos, shot on an N95 (what else?) by Medievaren
