Last night saw the Mobile Entertainment Awards 2008 being announced at a gathering of the great and good of the world’s mobile industry.

I’m delighted to report that for the 2nd year in a row, Bango won the Best Transactions Provider award, beating Dialogue, Ericsson IPX, Mblox, Netsize and Valista.
