UK-based 'Mobile Entertainment' conducted a worldwide poll on mobile content providers and drew a list of top 50 people based on various criteria such as experience, number of years in business, range of content, innovations and company size, growth rate and current projects.
The list also features big hitters like Steve Jobs (Apple), Wang Jianzhou (China Mobile), Lincoln Wallen (EA Mobile), Graeme Ferguson & Jeremy Flynn (Vodafone), Mitch Lasky (Jamdat), Mitch Lazar (Yahoo!), Wang Lei Lei (TOM Online), Takeshi Natsuno (NTT DoCoMo), Geoffrey Frost (Motorola) to name a few.
The entire spectrum of content for mobiles - from the service providers to content developers of music, video, games, game shows, value added services including handset makers were included in the survey.
"It's a privilege to be a part of this elite list and inspires all of us to do better. We see a change in the way people use mobile phones and other handheld devices globally. And to be a part of that change is exhilarating. Mobile content business will definitely be one of the top grossers in the next 5 years," Vishal Gondal said.
