Event Details

The world is going mobile, and New England is home to many leading creators of applications for iPhones, Android phones, Windows Mobile, and other mobile platforms, as well as important wireless services, infrastructure, and advertising companies. But there's a lot of froth and hype in the market. With the economy in the tank and customers demanding real value, which companies and innovations will deliver what it takes to persevere and thrive? What applications and services will really improve business productivity? On the consumer side, how can wireless truly make people's lives better, safer, more convenient, and more fun?

Finding the answers requires focusing on fundamental questions about 1) the business challenges and opportunities of the new wireless era, and 2) the most promising areas for future innovation in mobile technologies and services.
