China Businesscast: Mobile Space in China

In the second part of our series on the mobile space in China, your correspondent interviews Richard Robinson, CEO of Dada Asia. Richard makes a case for why entertainment applications are the most compelling in the mobile business.

Aside from Dada, Richard produces ChopSchticks, which I had the privilege of attending and enjoyed immensely. Definitely highly recommended.
