    Mobile Internet SIG: Messaging 2.0 | Bubble Motion & Gemini Mobile

     

    Topic: Messaging 2.0

    In this meeting, we invite two company executives at the frontiers of creating next generations mobile messaging to speak what they think are the trends and how to profits from this new era of messaging communications, hence the topics "Messaging 2.0".

     

    At one point of time, offline messaging such as Email was the only type of messaging. Now you have instant messaging, scrapbook (Orkut), broadcast messaging (Status message of Facebook and Linkedin), and live updates (Twitter /Jaiku). On top of that, you have SMS, PIN messaging, and many companies are creating new products and platforms that merge the best of telephony (voice), SMS, MMS (multimedia messaging), variations of Push and Pull, social networking, communities, and geotargeting.

    1) Bubble Motion is a global leader of next generation mobile messaging applications. We offer the award-winning BubbleTALK service, and work with mobile operators around the world operating a global network of voice messaging and advanced audio content applications. Through our operator partnerships, BubbleTALK™ is available to over 190 million subscribers around the globe. Additionally, through Bubble Motion’s own international IP network operation, delivery of messages is possible to over 2.1 billion subscribers around the world.

    - BubbleNet: our plan to build out a global interoperable network for Voice SMS, providing access to users to communicate via VSMS with all their friends around the world.

    - BubbleDATA: Interesting tid-bits of information we have gleaned from our data analysis and user research

    2) Gemini Mobile Technologies and its eXplo product set (mobile community and social networking platform, IM and messaging, mobile content delivery, advertising) will discuss how the rapid growth in social networking, the increasing number of smart phones, and a sea-change in mobile application distribution is bringing mobile messaging into the next generation. He will show how Gemini is using its industry leading mobile messaging technology to take advantage of this unique market situation.

     

    From wireless voicemail to email, from chatting to interactive games, from shopping to entertainment, 3D community applications, and more, our solutions deliver messaging and multimedia content instantaneously to millions of wireless devices worldwide. This accelerates time to market, reduces customer churn, boosts revenue and profitability, and increases return on infrastructure investment.
