The mobile platform wars are high on the agenda at the Open Mobile Summit this year. Taking place in San Francisco Nov. 8-10, the Open Mobile Summit brings together the strategic leaders across operators, OEMs, software and apps to explore the major mobile battlegrounds.
This year, CCS Insight's Jon Jackson will be putting leading OEMs on the hot-seat on the Keynote panel "Mobile Platform Wars and the Device Future" featuring Jason McKenzie President Americas HTC, Omar Khan CSO Samsung, Alain Mutricy SVP of Motorola and Mike Bell VP of Intel.
Then, Microsoft, RIM, Qualcomm and Google kick off the Nov. 10 morning panel on "Platforms, devices and app marketplaces: The next 12 months" moderated by Rich Wong of Accel Partners.
Across the three days, CEOs and strategic leaders of the entire converging mobile, Internet and media ecosystems will likely weigh in on the debate. Dan Hesse CEO Sprint and Anthony Melone CTO Verizon Wireless share the carrier perspective, and Foursquare, Zynga, Disney, MLB and more will represent the voice of the apps and media world.
The summit will explore the big picture questions in mobile today including:
- The business case for 4G
- Beyond flat rate - and the impact on the app economy
- Who's winning the platform wars?
- Who owns the content in the cloud
- The evolving business model for apps and the mobile Web
- How - and when - mobile advertising will cross the chasm
- Connected electronics, tablets and Internet anywhere
- The strategies of the major players - does anyone stand a chance against Google and Apple?
- M2M and the Internet of things
- The enterprise app opportunity
And much more. You can see the full agenda here.
