SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 17, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SDForum, Silicon Valley's leading source of information and education in the technology community, today announced its conference "The Mobile Internet Tsunami" being held on Friday, December 10, 2010, from 8:30a.m. to 4:45p.m. PST at the Microsoft Conference Center in Mountain View, CA.

The mobility revolution began with cell phones, then Internet, and now delivery has kicked into high gear. As mobile devices infuse our lives and change how we conduct business, they are creating unprecedented opportunities for tech professionals and consumers alike. This "can't miss" conference will examine rapidly increasing mobile content consumption and how existing lines of business are being swept along by new devices, services, and forms of monetization.

"This conference is another way Microsoft is doubling down on its commitment to mobile technologies – helping to bring together experts, startups and analysts to our Campus to examine the increasing mobile content consumption and how businesses can take advantage of this revolution," said Dan'l Lewin, Corporate Vice President for Strategic and Emerging Business Development. "The Mobile Internet Tsunami is one example of why Microsoft has supported SD Forum. They are committed, through events like this one, to fostering innovation and entrepreneurship in the technology community."

Ted Shelton, CEO of Open-First, said, "Silicon Valley has become ground zero for the next revolution of mobile computing. I can't think of a better location and better organization than SDForum to host an examination of the emerging opportunities. The future is going to be all about mobile - for Silicon Valley and for the world."

Attendees will have the opportunity to network with business executives, startups, analysts and investors and share insights in what the future of the mobile market holds and how it has impacted new media, in a series of panels and keynotes.

"As mobile impacts all aspects of the IT sector, the winners and losers have yet to be determined," said Susan Lucas-Conwell, CEO of the SDForum. "As the pre-eminent organization connecting the dots in the eco-system, we are delighted to bring together the mobile movers and shakers."
