Well known author, speaker, and trainer on Android, Mark Murphy has gracious agreed to do this presentation for us.
There is plenty of money to be made in mobile, particularly with Android. However, the conventional ways of making money have one big problem they're conventional, and hence overcrowded. Trying to sell individual app's to individual users is a tough row to hoe in an Android Market with tens of thousands of app's. In this presentation, we'll explore alternative ways to make a buck, euro, or yuan with Android...and for mobile in general.
Note: This is the same presentation done by Mark recently at the Day of Mobile. Mark’s slides are available at http://www.slideshare.net/commonsguy/making-money-at-mobile
