MUMBAI: The GSM Association (GSMA) has announced the six finalists for the first Asia Mobile Innovation Awards, a competition for young, small and start up companies across Asia that are developing technologies, applications and compelling content for the fast moving mobile space.

The six short-listed companies have been selected from more than 70 entries by a panel of judges comprising innovation leaders from mobile operators, vendors and venture capital firms.

The competition will culminate at the 3GSM World Congress Asia in Singapore on 16 October 2006, when a representative from each of the companies nominated will present an 'elevator pitch' style presentation to the judging panel for final selection of the winners. There are two Awards categories ? Most Innovative Mobile Application or Content; and Most Innovative Technology Development.

The Innovation forum session will also include presentations and panel discussions on the mobile innovation theme by Smart Communications, Bharti, Ericsson and SpinVox ? this year?s winner of the GSMA?s global innovation award.

Each category has three nominations:

Category 1 - Innovative Mobile Application or Content
