A session at GigaOM Mobilize 2011

Monday 26th September, 2011

3:20pm to 4:00pm (PST)

During the last few months we have seen dramatic changes in the telecommunications industry. Internet behemoths like Apple, Microsoft, Facebook and Google have all become major players in the battle for mobile communication revenues, meanwhile a change in consumer behavior have posed a threat to traditional operators. What impact will this battle have in the near future, and what will this mean for consumers? This panel will take a look at some of the latest technologies and partnerships that have emerged and discuss the trillion dollar question: Who will win the battle for mobile communications?
