Mobilizing the Internet: Mobile Web 2.0

Mobile Web 2.0 seems to be the latest catch-phrase to describe the newest iteration of the wireless Internet. Juniper Research predicts the mobile Web market will be worth $22.5 billion in 2013. But does anyone really know what Mobile Web 2.0 means? The definitions run the gamut from open networks to bypassing the operator. Clearly Mobile Web 2.0 encompasses things such as social networking, location-based services and anything else that drives mobile Web traffic.

At the CTIA I.T. & Entertainment show there will be a co-located seminar on Tuesday, Sept. 9 devoted to Mobile Web Strategies featuring speakers from Nokia, Yahoo, Ericsson, AOL and more.

Of course, key to Mobile Web 2.0 is the wireless carrier. You can get a chance to hear the wireless operator angle on Mobile Web 2.0 on Sept. 10 at 1 p.m. during the "Mobile Web 2.0: The Carrier Perspective" panel featuring Mark Collins of AT&T and Ian McKerlich of T-Mobile USA.
