Churchill Club Presents: The March to Mobility

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - August 23, 2010) -  The Churchill Club, Silicon Valley's premier business and technology forum, today announced its evening event, The March to Mobility, which will examine what carrying supercomputers and having an infinite access to data at all times will mean for consumers, businesses, telecommunications providers and the economy.

Smartphones are the Silicon equivalent to the Swiss Army knife -- combining the functions of phones, PCs, cameras, satellite navigation devices, game consoles, remote controls, e-readers, MP3 players and portable TVs and radios. Representatives from Ericsson, HP, Intel, and Nokia will discuss what this key piece of technology will mean for us in the future. Speakers will also address what types of solutions might emerge to overcome screen and keyboard size limitations, whether new interfaces and voice recognition will dramatically evolve user interaction, the growth and impact of mobile broadband, and the future of the computer.

The event will be moderated by Don Clark, San Francisco deputy bureau chief, Wall Street Journal, and speakers include Håkan Eriksson, chief technology officer and head of Ericsson Silicon Valley, Ericsson; Phil McKinney, vice president and chief technology officer, Personal Systems Group, HP; Mike Bell, vice president, Ultra Mobility Group, Intel; and Eric Klein, vice president of technology planning, Nokia.
