The hype around the arrival of mobile Internet, mobile apps, and mobile Web sites is increasing. Strategists realize that mobile is hot, but they're perhaps less sure whether this is hot air or the white heat of progress.

This time it's different. This teleconference explains why and what the implications are for building mobile product and service strategies now.
Mobile is now too important for companies to ignore. And the key Internet brands are already heavily engaged in mobile. Firms must avoid failing to act in mobile because they have failed to think. Not pursuing a mobile initiative now must be an active decision, not a strategy that arrives through inertia.
