Our Live Coverage of Mobilize

It’s a beautiful Thursday here in the city by the Bay, and the GigaOM team is ready to bring you the events of Mobilize, our mobile application conference. GigaOM staffers Katie Fehrenbacher, Liz Gannes and Stacey Higginbotham will be blogging the panels and keynotes, and we’ve corralled Kevin Tofel and James Kendrick from jkOnTheRun for some live interviews with attendees. You can click here for a live video stream (it’s also embedded below; just click play) as well as access the archives of each session and the hallway interviews. Check out some mobile vidcasting from the floor on NewTeeVee.

Let’s mobilize.

Mobilize ’08 Coverage

Just a quick heads up that tomorrow we will be providing coverage of the Mobilize Conference in San Francisco.

There will be a couple of cool iPhone specific companies presenting as well as almost a dozen other mobile companies. Hopefully we’ll be able to bring you guys some breaking news on new apps!

I’m really excited about Tapulous being there. Tap Tap Revenge has got to be one of the best games available on the iPhone/iPod touch.

If you’ll be at Mobilize ’08, let me know in the comments and we can have a big TAB shindig.

Mobilize LaunchPad Deadline is August 20

We have received quite a few submissions for the Startup LaunchPad at our Mobilize 08 conference that is scheduled to be held on September 18, 2008 in San Francisco. I wanted to remind everyone that the deadline for applications ends tomorrow, August 20. We will announce a short list of companies on Monday, August 25.

As a reminder, I want to stress the fact that you don’t need to be a venture-backed company. If you are a single developer with a great app and are ready to show off, you are more than welcome, but you better hurry. You can go here to submit your applications. For those who wish to attend the conference, I just want you to know that our $100 discount ends August 29, so it might be good time to save some cash.

Mobilize 08: More Speakers Added, Early Bird Special To End Soon

We are working hard to prepare for our Mobilize 08 conference scheduled to be held on September 18 in San Francisco. You already know about Rich Miner (Google), Padmasree Warrior (Cisco Systems) and John Roese (Nortel). Today we are adding more awesome speakers to our growing lineup:

* Scott Richardson – Chief Strategy Officer of Clearwire
* Fred Kitson – VP, Applications Research, Motorola
* Marc Davis – Chief Scientist of Yahoo! Connected Life.

We are going to announce a few more in coming days including some candidate for fireside chats. Stay tuned, and if you haven’t bought your tickets already, it might be a good a time since our early bird special is ending soon. If you sign up now, you can save some money off the full price. (Ticketing information here.)

For mobile startups cooking up new products, iPhone apps or simply looking to launch in front of an influential audience, it might be a good time to apply for our LaunchPad, a free contest that will feature startups picked by our elite panel of judges. Entry form is here.
