Mobile and web are converging. How will new platforms like Android benefit from this convergence? Will the new platforms, such as Android facilitate mobile-web convergence and eventually replace the existing options? What are the available Android devices in 2010 and what kind of new devices should we expect: smartphones, net-books, machine to machine communications ? And what is the technical evolution of Android and Chrome platforms?

Format for this meeting: Presentations by experts will be followed by interactive discussions. We will have Android demonstrations and information provided by the invited speakers.
