Venturebeat's mobile event is July 12 and 13. Get your Vator discounted tickets

We wanted to give you a heads up about MobileBeat 2010, VentureBeat’s third annual conference on the future of mobile. This year's new two-day format will explore "The Year of The Superphone and Who Will Profit", and will be held on July 12-13 at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco.

Three camps—carriers, device makers, and software developers—are all vying for dominion over consumers’ pocketbooks. With the mobile landscape in flux, they're all investing heavily in a new set of form factors — tablets, 4G phones, HD TVs, connected devices — and the operating systems that power them. Carriers are investing billions into a 4G infrastructure that will massively increase bandwidth, just when cloud computing appears to be sapping the relevance from of carriers and device makers.  You'll watch firsthand as industry giants explore the many new opportunities and challenges that these superphones are creating for developers, platforms, investors and operators. The event will also examine the most innovative ways of monetizing mobile content and services — and dissect the young guard of companies exploiting 4G, apps, mobile TV, geo-local services, augmented reality, and more.

Heavy-hitters from all sectors of the mobile ecosystem are assembling at MobileBeat 2010 to discuss, debate, and explore who'll win in the midst of the superphone revolution, and why.

Keynotes include Phil McKinney, VP & CTO of HP's Personal System Groups, Omar Khan, Chief Strategy Officer of Samsung, and Omar Hamoui, AdMob founder and now Google's VP of Mobile Monetization.

  • Erick Tseng, Head of Mobile, Facebook,
