Mobile Future Forward–Speaker Update


Hope your summer is going well.

As Q2 earnings are coming in, the role of the fourth wave in shaping the mobile ecosystem is becoming apparent. The computing and communications landscape is changing in fundamental ways. Our fall mobile executive summit – Mobile Future Forward (Sept 10th in Seattle) is designed to explore these changes and opportunities in great detail.

Registration. Standard Saver expires July 31st (next week).

Wanted to provide an update on two important discussion areas –

Future of Computing and Communications

In the post-PC world, computing and communications are changing dramatically. What new device form-factors will evolve and what does that mean to applications, services, consumer interaction, and adoption? We will explore the deep stuff on this panel.

Operators and the 4th Wave

How are the operators taking advantage of the 4th wave and digital offering. We have 5 of the leading global operators to help brainstorm the next 5 years – where will the investments go, what strategies will be pursued, which verticals are ripe for disruption. Our distinguished guests represent practically every inhabited continent so am really looking forward to the global view of the opportunities in front of us.
