Announcing – Mobile Breakfast Series – Dec 14th – What’s in store for Mobile 2012?

2011 has been an incredible year in the mobile industry. The progress we have made has been staggering. There have been several industry shaping events throughout the year most notably the passing of the godfather of the digital age – Steve Jobs. While the economy is shaking other industries in their boots, mobile esp. in the north American market has continued its forward march with incredible fervor. This sets up our next and year-ending Mobile Breakfast Series nicely where we take the stock of the current year and look forward to the next one. We will anticipate and debate the trends, the players, and the shifts of the coming year. Our final event of the year will be on Dec 14th, and you don’t want to miss it as we will have some in-depth discussion that will help you prepare for 2012.
