Handheld gadgets – be they BlackBerrys, iPhones, Kindles, or Razrs – continue to increase their importance as content platforms as well as their threat to traditional media and publishing business models. In this session, we’ll look at what’s changing with technology, how publishers are serving that technology, and most of all what consumers are demanding. Don’t look now but the future is here.
