The mobile platform world

A session at Mobilism 2012

Thursday 10th May, 2012

10:20am to 11:10am (AMT)

OK, so in mobile there are about 25 browsers, 20 operators, 15 device vendors (excluding the tiny ones), and 10 operating systems. Do you know your way around all of them?

Especially for people who come from the quiet, reclusive zone that is the desktop web, with only 5 browsers and 3 platforms, the mobile world can be a daunting place where everything happens at once, relations are much more complicated than you expect, and the sheer amount of actors is confusing.

In this session PPK will attempt to bring some order in the chaos by discussing about seven of the most important actors, their relations, and their long-term plans. After this talk you can amaze your friends by explaining why Windows Phone will never amount to much, why Android fragmentation will become only worse, in which way Apple has stolen a march on its competitors, and what Nokia is doing.

Browsers all the way down. Why is there a browser on this orange? All opinions are of that guy I met in the pub last night. bio from Twitter
