IIR Mobile Internet Conference-Berlin
I'm pretty excited about the next Mobile Internet Conference organised by IIR Telecoms & Technology in Berlin's prestigious Kempinski Hotels at the end of the month.
The line up of speakers is impressive and confirms the trend evident at the Mobile World Congress -Mobile Content (particularly User Generated) is the key to future growth in the sector and is driving the agenda for manufacturers and operators alike.
It is not easy to single out key speakers from the line-up, but I'm going to be particularly tuned in to Alejandro Romero (Yahoo Spain), Simon Davis (Socialight), Reg Cox (Vodafone UK) and Mark Bole (Shozu).
Top of the agenda will be how to drive monetization of Mobile Social Networking and different models for diviing up responsibilities amongst stakeholders of the mobile ecosystem.
Being a big believer in simple browsing on mobile handsets as THE key to drive users to the mobile web, I am keen to hear from Flash Networks how they see future technology assisting the quest for universal i-phone style (or better!) browsing.
