Get ready for a heated debate as Accenture, in partnership with Cambridge Wireless, presents a panel of mobile industry gurus who are ready and willing to share their views about what is cool and what is not so hot at the Mobile World Congress 2013! If you attended MWC 2013, this is your chance to voice your own opinions with the rest of your peers.
