What's Going on in Wireless?

We're all experts at using mobile devices. Many of us even know how to write software for them. But do you know what is going on "under the covers" in mobile phone technology, at carriers, and in the standards development world?

Why won't the new iPad work in Australia? Why is international roaming so difficult? What do developers need to know about future networks? What interesting technology is on the horizon that could contribute to new mobile experiences?

Rob Wilcox will give you a systems level view of wireless, competing wireless standards, and wireless futures, free of the marketing and jargon which can color the industry. He'll also propose some long term trends, both social and technical, your consideration in developing new use cases.
