The latest episode of the OMPodcast is available to download with a particularly number heavy title – v1.13 5G in 2020. This week we were very excited to have a special guest on the show, Dr Hugh Bradlow, Telstra’s Chief Technology Officer. On the Outware panel this week we had Kent Humphries (iOS Team Lead), Keith Smyth (Android Team Lead) and Danny Gorog (Director/Co-Founder).

We talked about a broad spectrum (pardon the pun) of mobile related topics including 5G, Android releases and vendor relationships, wearables and iOS8. Hugh explained to us how Telstra’s innovation process works, and how they leverage their size to come up with fresh ideas. We also kept coming back to driverless cars and how they could make our lives better.
