Information for Presenters
Internet devices, and smartbooks are all potentially compelling
platforms for mobile broadband networks. The market is still at a
formative stage, but there is no question that many users would benefit
from devices that have better user interfaces than phones, and that
have much better battery life, are lower weight, and quicker to turn on
than notebooks. The purpose of this workshop meeting is to examine this
market area from both technical and market perspectives.
address the following types of questions:
- What are all the new types of devices
that are emerging and how are they classified?
- What are the key applications that
will be used on new types of devices?
- What is the business opportunity for
new types of devices?
- What characteristics will they need to
have to be successful?
- What are the operating system options
and what are the pros and cons of the different platforms? (Strengths
and weaknesses of Android, Linux, Windows, etc.)
- What wireless technologies are best
suited for these devices?
- How important is cloud computing for
- Are current operator data plans
sufficient, or are new ones needed?
- How will wireless technologies be
integrated in these devices? Chipset level? Module level?
- Will these devices support legacy
services such as circuit-switched voice and SMS?
that presenters and many of the attendees, are world leading
technologists on the subject material. We allocate sufficient time for
discussion that attendees can ask questions of greatest interest.
Moreover, the workshops allow informal networking during breaks where
attendees can exchange important information.
