For years, the carriers held most of the cards. Now the conversation and innovation is dominated by the platforms and extended to tablets that are more like overgrown smartphones than PCs. In this new mobile universe WiFi can be as important as 3G and users have more power and more access to more forms of content than ever. Android, iOS, webOS, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7 enhance the potential for content creators, distributors and developers. How do you translate content experiences across multiple platforms and devices — and make the most of the different opportunities? When does programming for the mobile browser make more sense than an app?
We’ll explore these questions and more at paidContent Mobile: Platform Power, our full-day mobile conference in New York on May 18 at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Our newest additions to a great roster of speakers: Rio Caraeff, president & CEO, Vevo; Evan Harrison, former president of Digital & EVP, *Clear Channel* Radio; Sara Öhrvall, Director of Global Research & Development, Bonnier; and Brian Alvey, CEO & founder, Crowd Fusion.
