About the Conference


As Mobile technology evolves, tremendous business opportunitieswill emerge. The growing consensus is that our current cabled, PC-centric computing will soon be replaced by an untethered world of smart phones and tablets providing computing, on the go. The mobile network we all envision will be much more flexible, powerful and easier to use than today's wired Internet, but with the added benefit that people can use it anywhere, anytime, with much greater variety of devices.
