This two-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on how the top emerging mobile companies are creating new business opportunities in the hot, high-growth mobile market.
"The mobile market is booming, as evidenced by top researchers, who are predicting that more smartphones will be shipped in 2012 than PCs, and there will be more mobile Internet users than PC Internet users by 2014," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "This explosive market is being driven by the companies that made this year's OnMobile Top 100 list. We congratulate the OnMobile 100, a great list of companies that our editors believe represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the private company marketplace."
