GMIC – Global Mobile Internet Conference is an annual event that is being organized by “Great Wall Club” every year since past 5 years. The event is an opportunity for many American and European companies to enter the vast Chinese market which can be considered to be the world’s biggest electronics market both in terms of production and users. So it’s a kind of deal that no one can afford to miss. The event has proved to be a gear shifting platform for many companies like Evernote, Flipboard, Rovio, the developers of Angry Birds and many more.
But here is the important part; Jolla’s CEO Marc Dillon is scheduled to attend the event and give a lecture on May 8, 2013 in AppSpace which is a part of the show where developers and entrepreneurs meet and new ventures may result as a part of these meetings. It is still not clear what the lecture will be about, but Jolla has left no sign in making it clear from the start that they will be focusing mainly on the Chinese market and they already have a deal worth 200 million Euro with a company based in Hong Kong, China. So there is a strong possibility of the announcement of the new Smartphone by Jolla which was proposed to be announced by this time of the year. There might be some fresh news from the desk of Sailfish OS as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
So don’t miss the event. But even if you miss it, don’t worry! We’ll be having all the latest news for you right here.
