The Mobile Software Development SIG Presents…

Who's making money in Mobile?



As of September 1, 2010, over 250,000 third party applications were officially in the App Store alone.  The mobile market continues to change, with new, more capable wireless devices and platforms being introduced frequently.  As software developers specializing in mobile, it's difficult enough to keep up with the hardware and platform innovation, but is anyone actually making money at this? 

This upcoming SIG event will focus on various mobile business models from companies at very different stages, and representing a wide number of market verticals: telecom, publishing, social, advertising.  Topics discussed will range from the role of mobile operators, app store approach vs. browser approach for distributing content, which platforms deliver the most success for the 3rd party developers, etc.
