The Future of Mobile (Sponsored by Blackberry)

There’s no question the mobile market is at an all time high. Companies are now shifting their marketing and development efforts to ensuring they have a strong mobile strategy, but have we only scratched the surface?

As part of our Tech in Motion mobile summer series we have invited a panel of mobile developers to discuss what the future holds for all things mobile.

In 1995 he formed Three Points Consulting with two partners, which focused on bringing the power of the emerging internet technology to everyday life.

    Very good panel, although the focus was more on the state of mobile rather than the future, in my opinion. It was good to get more technical compared to the Wearables event. I was surprised that the group didn't get more techie though to be honest, but it was great for me. I was also surprised not to hear more questions about how mobile impacts local startups. There seemed to be more networking at the Wearables event, maybe that was just me.

      You may be right Rich. I'm assuming that the decision to change focus to current state happened after the event was titled though.

    Parking update: There is parking in UNH (U Hall) under the building. When you first drive on to campus it is the big building on your right and there are parking entrances to your right. When you park head to the left (as if you are underground driving farther on to campus) because UNH 1000 is the part of the building by where the flag entrance (main entrance) of the building is.

    Greetings all! Really excited to attend this event. Would love to meet with developers currently developing an app or already have an app in the stores. Especially if you would like to discuss monetization.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
