With the latest finance crisis and stock market crash, both business and individuals are facing significant challenges: Big corporations are cutting cost and downsizing workforce while startups are struggling with shrinking market and drying capital sources. The soft job market makes people more cautious about the future.

However, the storm and darkness should not prohibit us from looking for brightness and opportunities. The old wisdom tells us that crisis is always accompanied by opportunities. Google is Google because it survived and thrived through the internet bubble burst. In the upcoming era of Mobile Internet, who will be the next Google? How will the landscape of mobile ecosystem look like after the storm retreats? What will be the next killer apps to drive the changes?

For this panel discussion, we invite high-level executives and entrepreneurs from industry leaders, carriers, end devices manufactures, mobile application providers, venture capitalists and analysts to discuss various aspects of the mobile ecosystem in this lifetime challenging time.
