  • 3. Mobile 2.0 Overview
    • Next generation of advanced mobile services, apps & data
    • Web 2.0 means:
      • user generated content (wikis)
      • collaboration (social networking)
      • AJAX, mash-ups and rapid development
    • Mobile 2.0 is different – it's the outgrowth of:
      • better, faster, cheaper, open wireless devices, networks and data plans
      • people seeking the next cool mobile experience
      • mobile messaging "maturation" beyond texting/SMS
    • Examples: mobile messaging, mobile search, mobile presence, location-based services, phone-based navigation
      • it's more than "new" mobile web, it's "mobile everywhere"
      • all types of data/content must be mobilized, synced and pushed
  • 4. Mobile 2.0 Caveat
    • Mobile 2.0 is NOT about squeezing the Web 2.0 experience into a mobile device
      • it has been tried with Web 1.0 and it miserably failed
      • if we make this the focus, it will fail again
    • Mobile 2.0 is about a combination of locally installed apps with data locally stored, updated over-the-air via push while the user is not looking at the device
      • the browser is an element of the puzzle, but not the main driver
      • widgets are the closest thing to the perfect experience, if you add local storage and push
      • Web 2.0 technologies might actually become the backbone of Mobile 2.0, though (e.g. Webkit and mobile AJAX)
  • 5. Mobile 2.0 is about OPENNESS
    • OPEN NETWORKS
      • Is Verizon “Any Apps, Any Device” real and what about the 700Mhz spectrum? Will it rock our world?
      • What about WiMax, City-wide Wi-Fi, FON, Meraki, and so on?
    • OPEN DEVICES
      • Is Google Android going to take off like a rocket and will the iPhone really be opened up or is it all a joke?
      • Are Symbian and Windows Mobile closed?
    • OPEN CONTENT
      • Is the weather forecast an open content?
      • What about gambling, micropayments and adult entertainment?
    • OPEN SOURCE
      • Is open source changing the game for good and how many Mobile Linux variations will we see? Why does it matter so much?
      • Will Funambol be the first billion dollars open source company?
