    Hey Yomi, what’s with the dress code ? does that mean if I dress in Yoruba or Hausa mode I won’t be allowed in. I think this site is MobilityNigeria not MobilityEngland.

    Things are in place for tomorrow’s Smartphone Show!

    I just got confirmation that Quam of MyCricketPDA who have been supplying us with review devices in recent times will be there, amongst others.

    More entries for the WIN-a-smartphone prromo have been received since yesterday. Remember that all those who purchased new phones from the Phone Store during the promo are also automatically entered.

    Winners will be selected via a lucky dip at the event tomorrow in the presence of all participants.

    Hope I can sleep tonight!
