3:30pm to 4:30pm
Ever met a friend for a spur-of-the-moment drink just because Foursquare told you he was down the block? How about popped into a restaurant in a foreign city because your phone told you that you’d like it? Or got wind of a special product offer at the precise moment you were walking by your favorite store? If you haven’t yet, you will. And your life will be better for it.
Here’s the deal: new location-aware technologies recognize where you are and connect you to the people and things that matter to you most. But you knew that already. What you don’t know is what’s next – how the next generation of mobile location-aware services are going to transform how you socialize, shop and experience entertainment in unimaginable new ways. Where a mobile device will know what you like, maybe even more than your best friend. And where you hold a virtual passport to new and spontaneous experiences in the palm of your hand.
Dr. Tero Ojanperä of Nokia will lead a panel that propels you into the future of location-based services and gives you a first look at the products and services that will revolutionize how you connect with the world around you.
