iPhone and Beyond is a seminar for content executives that examines opportunities with the launch of iPhone and how it is shifting views of the mobile content platform, and the larger developments in the industry with emerging consensus on open networks and free flow of content. Now that the iPhone is here, how does it move the industry forward? Also, what do the iPhone’s omissions say about the progress that still needs to be made? What kind of services can the industry hope for, as the handset evolves into an open platform? How does all this affect the media and entertainment industry?
This half-day seminar will focus on the practical problems and conceptual leaps the industry needs to make to enable open content and communication services on handsets and networks. The iPhone isn’t the only handset designed to enhance media use, only the most hyped. What are others doing that works? What doesn’t and why? Can content truly thrive in a maze of closed systems? How will operators play into the open-content market?
