D: Dive Into Mobile represented the very first brand extension of the highly influential D: All Things Digital conference, founded by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher. Offering a more intimate and focused conference setting, D: Dive Into Mobile was held at the Ritz Carlton, San Francisco from December 6-7, 2010.
From the beginning, the D: All Things Digital conference, and the All Things Digital online media extension, have remained intently focused on exploring and analyzing the impact the digital revolution has had on every facet of our lives. Building upon that mission, D: Dive Into Mobile facilitated a concentrated discussion on the ubiquity of mobile technology, and its implications for brands, organizations and consumers worldwide.
While D: All Things Digital conference takes a big picture view of the broader digital landscape, D: Dive Into Mobile drilled down to the innovations influencing the mobile space in the near-term–and the implications for you and the strategic direction of your business over the next year to 18 months.
To reveal those insights, D: Dive Into Mobile probed the critical questions that have remained unanswered. How many platforms can the industry support? What’s the future for the tablet market? Who will win the battle raging between carriers and the tech industry? Will 4G deliver upon its promise?
Exploring these and a range of other topics is at the core of why D: Dive Into Mobile was created. Through deep, unscripted discussion, D: Dive Into Mobile sought to provide answers to the industry’s most pressing questions directly from the thought-leaders driving mobile’s growth.
