This week's MobileCon conference was the place to see the latest wireless technology for the enterprise and consumers. Some of it was good, and some of it was silly. I ventured forth from Internet Evolution's secret underground fortress in San Diego to check things out.
Most interesting: A presentation by Zipcar CEO and chairman Scott Griffin, dicussing how mobile has transformed his young company, even in the few short years it's been doing business.
I saw a variety of products and software for enterprises to manage mobile devices and applications. I learned a new buzzword: M2M, for "machine-to-machine" communicatons, such as sensors on long-haul trucks reporting conditions back to fleet management systems. I saw a couple of the latest Android phones.
No iPhone cases though. Too bad. Love those iPhone cases.
And I saw Alice. Click on her below to see a gallery of photos from the conference.
MobileFocus is an event within MobileCon where vendors show off their latest mobile wares to a
corps of hungry journalists. Literally hungry – they put on quite a food spread. This year’s theme:
Alice in Wonderland.
