Barrons.com mentioned in 2008 that "within 5 years, everything that matters to you will be available to you on a device that fits in your belt or in your purse". The Apple App Store and iPhone were launched that same year and changed the way mobile devices are being used and utilized. Google, Research in Motion (Blackberry) and others have also released competing devices with similar capabilities. The ability to access information at anytime in any location, easily in the palm of your hand, allows immediate decision-making. The speaker will share what we have done in NUS and showcase some innovative mobile applications.
