Updates from the Event
The mobility revolution that began with cell phone calls, then Internet access, and now media delivery is finally kicking into high gear. As mobile devices infuse our lives and change how we conduct business, they are creating unprecedented opportunities for tech professionals and consumers alike. One financial analyst likens the trend to the mass adoption of the PC (“it’s the best long term investment that I know of in this market”), labeling it the mobile Internet tsunami. With everything from TV, telecommunications, and retail, to publishing, gaming and social media going mobile, now is the time to hear from companies leading the charge today and those that will be funded tomorrow. Discover the products, services, and initiatives that are essential to track from our panel of experts. This is a “can’t miss”conference that will examine rapidly increasing mobile content consumption, as well as how how existing lines of business are being swept along by new devices, services, and forms of monetization.
