TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 7, 2011) - On February 7th, MobileMonday Toronto, Canada's largest mobile industry networking group, launches the 2011 calendar with the 2nd annual Mobile Market Insights event with prominent Canadian industry analysts. Moderated by Jeff Mucci, Publisher of RCR Wireless, the panel includes returning analysts Michael Urlocker, Director – Equity Research GMP Securities), Ron Gruia, Principal Analyst (Frost & Sullivan) and Krista Napier, Senior Analyst (IDC Canada). The event is being held in conjunction with MobileMonday Toronto's partnership with MaRS.

2010 was a very dynamic year for the Canadian wireless industry, with new competitors, and increased growth in penetration and data usage. 2011 will present new challenges from a regulatory, acquisition and device perspective. 

"We had a significant turnout for the event last year and the panel delivered on a fantastic discussion with audience participation. We have the same panelists back to provide their insights for the coming year. Jeff Mucci, RCR Wireless Publisher is back to moderate and raise key issues of great interest to our large community," said Jim Brown and Alexander S. Bosika, co-founders of MobileMonday Toronto. "We're thrilled to have respected analysts back on stage to share their thoughts in what we expect will be an extremely engaged conversation."
