It’s been a hectic morning at Future of Mobile which kicked off today. You can follow much of the action on Twitter, but we’ve been grabbing interviews with everyone we can which we’ll put up over the next few days.
There’s an excellent range of speakers – Rich Miner is currently on stage presenting on Android and Google Gears, but Doug Richards of Trutap also impressed earlier with an thoughtful discussion of emerging markets… the killer quote “if you read the web you’d think everyone in India was using using a $50 handset to check the price of cereals… they’re not. If you went to a cocktail party in Mumbai they’d be quite indignant about that…” He also announced a new version of their IM application.
Jemima Kiss from the Guardian and our own Ewan Macleod told it like it is in the first blogger session alongside James Whatley, Vero and Andrew Gill – there’s more to come later in the day. It’s nice to see such a mix on stage.
Right now David Wood, Executive Vice President of Symbian, is asking the man from Google about handset compatability… where else can you see that?
