    Two big things, one what is/how to find the best route to market for your mobile app? Has Apple got it right with the app store, or should we be looking to get “on-portal” or pre-installed, or is there another, better way. And two, is there or should there separation of the web and mobile web, should all sites just be device aware or should people have dedicated m. or .mobi versions and for that matter is .mobi better than m. and are they (.mobi) pushing their own agenda too much.

    My view of the “future of mobile”? To quote Irish Rail of all people “A lot done, a lot more to do.” What I mean is that we are really only the verge of what mobile will be. One of the greatest inventions 100 years ago was “the ability to send a short string characters wireless from anywhere to anywhere else” and it was widely used and very popular, it was called morse code. Today one the most used the most used mobile services is “the ability to send a short string characters wireless from anywhere to anywhere else” called SMS. So taking that into account we really haven’t progressed that much in 100 years and we have a long way to go before the mobile experience that normobs (normal mobile users) have catches up with that of the techies and early adopters.
