Location: Regency Ballroom

An emerging class of smartphones including location-based services and persistent data connections are lenses by which we can effectively view data layers atop physical space. What was once only available from tethered desktop computers is now possible from pocket-sized companion devices that travel with us. We are seeing examples of this in their earliest incarnations - social networking, gaming, reference and commerce.

Opposed to looking far into the future, this panel looks at examples of this technology in use and available today to consumers on a variety of smartphone platforms, including the Apple iPhone and Google Android. Panelists will provide short demonstrations of this technology, followed by a topic discussion and Q&A.
