This presentation discusses the technologies and applications driving the mobile Internet and the need for effective platform strategies. The former includes microprocessor speeds, memory sizes, client-side programming, and network speeds. These technologies are making the phone a portable entertainment player, a new marketing tool for retailers and manufacturers, a multi-channel shopping device, a navigation tool, a new type of ticket and money, and a new mobile Intranet device. Service providers, phone manufacturers, content providers, and technology suppliersneed to create the appropriate strategies to make their products and services the platforms for the mobile Internet.
