I just got back from having a drink with the guys from Kimia, who were visiting London (and the Yahoo offices on the way!) After finally meeting them in person I can confirm that these guys are set to be successful in the mobile arena. I really hope the best for them. And I don’t say that because they’re spanish (I know it’s what you’re thinking!) but because they have made some really big and cool bets and that makes them deserve it!
If you still don’t believe me, check out Alembik, the web/media transcoding service they have released as open source and that is part of the core of their “kubes” project. This initiatives are what all mobile web should be about, because (in their own words) “conversion of content to mobile should be a commodity”
Now, if only some companies out there were thinking the same way… *sigh*
