8ta + Samsung = a rocking Mobile Monday year end !

Every organisation wants to end of a year on a good note. Unfortunately Mobile Monday did not succeed – it ended on a FRIGGIN GREAT note !

It was meant to be THE end of the year event to attend and that was an understatement. Those who registered and missed it, really did miss something special.
