Mondo Mobile Market Disruption Coming

Nivi posts a thought-provoking list of signals that the telephony market is headed for mondo disruption. He cites the Apple ROKR as nothing more than “a beta test for Apple to see if they can actually work with the handset manufacturers and mobile carriers”, Series 60 designer Christian Lindholm leaving Nokia for Yahoo!, and Google’s acquisition of mobile player Android and their investment in Current, a power-line broadband company.

We also agree that the telephony market is ripe for some creative destruction, which is why we announced the O’Reilly Emerging Telephony Conference today. The conference will be held January 24-26 in San Francisco.
