Wireless Innovation to Be Center Stage at Emerging Communications (eComm) Conference 2008

When some of the world's leading thinkers in telecommunication and wireless technology innovation gather at the Emerging Communications (eComm) Conference 2008 here next month, conferees can expect to witness telecommunications history in the making. The iPhone developer movement, Google's support for the new Android mobile operating system and FCC-mandated open spectrum have created the perfect storm to change the face of the mobile industry.

With a roster of speakers that includes Rich Miner, group manager, mobile platforms at Google; Jonathan Christensen, general manager, audio and video at Skype; Brough Turner, chief technical officer and senior vice president at NMS Communications; ex-Google employee turned angel investor Chris Sacca; Benoit Schillings, chief technical officer at Trolltech (Nokia), and Christopher Allen, founder of the largest iPhone developer-support community, attendees are guaranteed exposure to the best opportunity space in global telecoms as mobile becomes the new platform for innovation.

"I wouldn't be surprised to see an iPhone SDK, J2ME, Skype and Android battling to take center stage," said Lee S. Dryburgh, conference organizer and chair. "It's for certain that eComm 2008 is the first telecom conference focusing on the democratization of telecoms innovation and we've attracted the best people on the planet.

"In the context of the perfect storm that arose toward the end of last year, eComm2008 at the Computer History Museum on March 12-14 is definitely the place to be if you're concerned at all about the future of the telecommunications industry," Dryburgh added. "The tsunami of change heading for the wireless communications industry is so strong we've dubbed the event 'The Trillion Dollar Industry Rethink.'"

eComm 2008 sponsors so far include Voxbone, Ribbit, Six Apart, NMS Communications, IfByPhone, MIR3, Voxeo, Wireless Grids Corporation, and VAPPS.
