For the first time, Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona will see live coverage of keynote speeches streamed direct to mobile following an expansion of the GSMA’s relationship with mobile video specialist Yospace. Thanks to yospaceCDS’s breadth of device support, anyone with a streaming capable mobile device will be able to watch live coverage of keynotes on Monday 14th February from Dick Costolo, CEO, Twitter and Steve Ballmer, CEO, Microsoft, and on Tuesday 15th February from Eric Schmidt, CEO and Chairman of Google.

Trevor Skinner, GSMA Digital Director said “Following the experience gained working with Yospace to power our mobile VoD coverage from last year’s event, we’re very pleased to be extending this year’s live coverage to a wider mobile audience”.

Round the clock coverage of Mobile World Congress 2011 including the live keynotes will be available from 9am CET on Monday 14th February to 6pm CET Thursday 17th February.  Mobile users can access the coverage through the Mobile World Live mobile site, as well as the Mobile World Live iPhone, Android and Blackberry apps.
