Mobile MondayPosted: April 13, 2011
So, it was nice to attend Mobile Monday, at the helm of Mario Tapia, the other night. The theme was “Enterprise Apps” and the room was packed. This is a topic that will soon deserve its own major two-day event (Drew Ianni, I am looking at you). Cisco sponsored, which may have helped. Many companies demo’d mostly collaboration, video conferencing and storage apps. Mobclix has a nice round up about the event. With so much hiring going on, this was a great event for networking and to seek out jobs or talent.
When Mario took a poll of the crowd early on, it was somewhat surprising to see so many folks indicate that Windows Phone 7 is becoming a more and more compelling platform. I keep hearing many developers say they are taking a closer look, and I think the Nokia deal had a lot to do with making MSFT more interesting. We will see!
