What's a MVNO, you ask? MVNO is an acronym for Mobile Virtual Network Operator. For some silly reason, it hasn't entered into every day vernacular. But, everyone in the mobile world seems to think it has. Or maybe they just don't write for others to understand.

Of course the big news yesterday was that MySpace is launching with Helio
when they debut sometime later this year. The announcement following repeated announcements of the impending launch of MySpace wasn't necessarily a surprise. To me it is certainly reinforced by what I wrote here
in terms of what the impact will be. Debi did a pretty comprehensive write up here
that fleshes things out a bit. Most of all though I thought what Russ wrote here
, although saying he doesn't see it, shows that he understands it.
