For the first time this year the conference is going to feature separate "Business" and "Builder" tracks for the afternoon session. The builder track looks especially interesting with panels on "Mobile Web vs. Applications vs. Widgets" and "Mobile Web User Experience" and tutorial sessions on "Building, dynamic, compelling, ad-funded, off-deck mobile web content", "iPhone WebApps", "Mobile Design", "Yahoo! Blueprint", "Nokia Web Runtime" and "Gears Mobile". View the complete agenda.
The Business track has some interesting sessions in the morning too. I'm especially looking forward to the panel on the mobile web and mobile browsers with representatives from Opera, Netfront, Skydeck and Mozilla.
