Full details of event as below.

The Mobile Web Megatrends is a unique one day event that addresses the

strategy and best practices relating to key current trends for the

Mobile Web.

The simple idea behind Mobile Web Megatrends is to create a small,

niche event focused on developments that are key to the Mobile Web

currently (2008/2009)

This means that the event will be much more focused and granular.. For

instance – we don’t want to talk about ‘Nokia’ but rather about Nokia

S40 6th edition which has implications for the mass market. Similarly,

Opera Mobile 9.5 is significant due to features such as implementation

of Google Gears and widgets. Thus, the event will have a much more granular,

interactive focus than other events. Some of the topics we will cover

are (note that this is an indicative list only at this stage ..)

• The evolution of the browser(Opera, Nokia)

• Location based services 2.0 – (Cell id databases)

• APIs – network(GSMA, OpenAjax, Bondi)

• Widgets

• Advertising models including analytics

• Mobile social networks

• iPhone (including iStore)

• Android

• Nokia S40 6th edition – the impact on mass market phones

• Flashlite

• Mobile Web demographics – the numbers, uptake figures, impact of

flat rate etc

• Browser plugins

• Enterprise and Mobile Web

• Cloud computing

• Emerging markets

• QR codes and

• Offline browsing

The discussion will focus on the strategy, implementation, competitive

advantages and the pitfalls of these trends.

This is a unique opportunity to get an unbiased viewpoint with the

opportunity to discuss these developments. You can clarify your

thinking from the experience of others and keep the conversation going

through an ongoing attendees only discussion forum

Watch this space for more updates .. The date will be Sep 8, the

venue will be Pacific Film Archive Theater – University of California – Berkley

and the tickets will be at only

$195
