Future of Mobile

I'm attending The Future of Mobile conference in London today. Wow this is really impressive. In one day we are covering pros and cons of native apps, web/HTML5 apps, non-apps, "the cloud", sensors, plus of course dissecting Android, iOS and Windows to the death.

One of my favorite sessions was by PhoneGap, a cross-platform native app platform, running on HTML5. This _could_ be the future of mobile. Let's see what our panel on HTML5 vs native apps will come up with. I'm there later today with Dan Appelquist, Tom Hume, James Pearce and Brian LeRoux from PhoneGap.

My own session was titled "App stores, which is the right one for me?". Funny question ;) The only sensible way to address the question was to have a workshop where we would talk through the topic together with the audience. It went well, and thank you enormously if you were there to contributed.

First we watched a little video that I made with Ugur Kaner, Julien Fourgeaud, Sivakumar Karuppusamy and Josep Maria Roca, thank you guys too for starring the video. You can watch the video on Youtube.

Based on the video, we then talked through different characteristics and attributes of Apple App Store, Android Marketplace and the Windows Mobile app store. Here's what we came up with:

It's not self-explanatory, but it might give you an idea of how the audience felt about the stores.

The day still continues, and looking increasingly interesting.
