The Mobile Delivery of Content - 30 Oct 2009 The global acceptance of wireless mobile devices for communication and accessing information has grown to the point that the technology is now at the cusp of transforming the information industry. Cell phones, smart phones, netbooks and e-book readers are becoming essential conduits to information. Todays top-end smart phones are as powerful - by the computational calculation speeds of their processors - as were the worlds fastest supercomputer of only two-decades ago. This meeting will provide an overview of the current acceptance of mobile devices as an Internet access tool, along with case studies of information providers who are currently offering mobile-ready content. It will look at the challenges that must be met in content preparation and adapting to diverse technology infrastructures, and will discuss some of the new business practices and policies that are emerging as publishers and librarians experiment with providing mobile delivery of content. In closing, we will take a look at how this new delivery channel will evolve over the next five years.
