Meet Nigel Pepper and Robbie Clutton, software engineers working for British Telecom. They and team have built an excellent .NET SDK for mobile development (Conference call, SMS, Etc..). They provide a number of services that you can use in your mobile applications to help you innovate.

The SDK is an exposure of 6 web services: Sms messaging, Conference calling, Voice calling (2 person telephone call), IM and presence, Profile/information store,  and a ‘white label’ authentication service.  It is still in beta but are Nigel, Robbie et al are working towards promoting the services and exposure to production.

      Nice presentation,
      Why both Nigel  and Robbie have their shirt made of a curtain ?

      Awsome Robbie and Nigel! Big congrats! Nice to see that incmoming SMS is becomming a part of the SDK. Keep up the good work, and good luck on the v1.0 release.

      On the curtain shirts, it's an Hawaii shirt, the official "uniform" of the SDK team. They all weared them on the Beta launch at TechEd Europe in November.

      I guess the shirts are some kind of viral marketing approach. They do show somewhat dubious taste!

      Regardless of the fashion sense, these guys seem to have some cool stuff. Their site shows that they now have PHP, Python, and Java SDKs out there.

      I'm looking forward to new features. And I wonder when they are gonna get their first release out the door? Till then it's a bit of a science fair project.

      Hey, great post (if I do say so myself). 

      Jonas, since you guys played with the SDK at the Accelerator, we've had another release with added features.  We're expecting another release sometime in April, so keep watching

      Me thinks it’s bad when talk of such an SDK puts thoughts into my head such as "England wouldn’t be a totally bad place to live for a time."
