The Mobile Industry Review Awards: Monday

We’re recording the Mobile Industry Review Awards — both the nominations and the winners — tonight.

I’ve just overseen the creation of our fancy envelopes with the results inside.

SHHHH. Can’t tell you who’s won.

Dan Lane, Ben Smith and James Whatley will be presenting alternate categories, listing out the nominations — and then ripping open the envelope, announcing the winner — and then explaining our reasoning.

It’s been a bit of a while coming. The final deliberations took us something like 4 hours. But we’re done and we’re live on Monday.

I think it will probably have to be a separate video from the usual Monday show — so expect two on Monday.
