A new feature of this year’s event were two interactive workshops that were part of the afternoon’s development/design track.

There is tremendous buzz currently around native apps and app stores thanks to the iPhone App phenomenon. This was especially noticeable  during a panel at Mobile 2.0 titled “Developers, Mobile Ecosystem Development & Third Party Services & Applications” The panelists, from Qualcomm, GetJar, O2, Sun and the Symbian Foundation, were all involved with their respective company’s App Store efforts.  While one can hardly blame players in the App store space for touting their vision, I  think it got a little … Continue reading
