As most of you know, this summer we have been working hard to put together our next-generation mobile conference Mobilize 08, which will look at the emergence of new devices and their impact on mobile data — in particular the opportunities they present for entrepreneurs.
Unlike some of the existing events, which focus almost exclusively on the handset, we are taking a more holistic view of the mobile data world, devoting time to connected devices such as the Kindle, as well as new platforms like the iPhone and Google Android.
Most importantly, we’re bringing in the carriers so that we can learn from the horse’s mouth what they plan to do to keep the mobile data industry growing, as well as how they want to work with innovators. We will hear from them on the panel Strategies To Keep Mobile Data Growing, on which wireless data guru Chetan Sharma will speak with Russ McGuire of Sprint, as well as three recently confirmed speakers: Michael Woodward of AT&T Wireless, Frank Meehan of Hutchinson Whampoa/3 and Venetia Espinoza of T-Mobile USA. (Read their bios on the speakers page.)
Tickets are going fast, so hopefully you’ve registered for the conference by now. If not, you can get tickets here.
