Jeff Coe will present : Mobile and the PC Convergence - A phenomenon discussed at every conference form 2001 to 2011 but now mentioned less and less.
Why? Is it because it’s already happened? Have mobile phones (wireless) and the PC (internet) truly converged and it’s no longer relevant to talk about?
If so, what effect has this had on the industry as a whole and the verticals playing into these spaces?
Jeff Coe, both an entrepreneur and investor, will give his opinion on convergence and, using his own experiences, will paint a picture of how he sees the current environment and what new opportunities are emerging from this.
