Hi I am Alexander Straub from London based Straub Ventures http://www.straubventures.com (where you also find my blog).

My interest in Mobile are centered around three of our portfolio companies.

1) ((truphone)) the worlds first 4G (MINO) Mobile Internet Network Operator, based in London with operations and customers in almost every country on the planet. truphone has build a network and handset applications which enable the utilization of WiFi to make alternative calls, but also allows the use of a innovative SIM Card (SIM4Travel) to call roaming charge free when abroad

2) Net-m AG (http://www.net-m.de ) is a German listed mobile application backend provider for services like billing, SMS, portal services, ring tones, full music downloads, TV advertisements of mobile apps like voice services, etc. The company is approaching close to Euro 100 million of revenue and is seeking expansion plans to grow even further via organic growth or acquisitions

3) Location based services on the mobile are of great interest. I am interested into a company in Munich called BuddyCloud which is the XEP (experimental standard) for the XMPP chat protocol. I have seen the Google GeoLocation API and Yahoo FireEagle as well as Sky Hook Wireless services on the iPhone. Nevertheless I do not want to give up on Location and believe BuddyCloud has something to add to the equation.
