SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 14, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- All Things Digital today announced the first brand extension of The Wall Street Journal's D: All Things Digital conference with D: Dive Into Mobile, which will take place December 6-7 at the Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco.
Offering a more intimate and focused conference setting, D: Dive Into Mobile will feature a gathering of industry heavyweights, including: Dan Hesse, President and CEO of Sprint Nextel; Mike Lazaridis, co-CEO of Research in Motion; Mike McCue, CEO of Flipboard; Joe Belfiore, Vice President of Microsoft's Windows Phone Program Management; Jon Rubinstein, CEO of Hewlett-Packard's Palm unit; Andy Rubin, Vice President of Mobile Platforms for Google; Dennis Crowley, CEO and Co-founder of Foursquare; and several more speakers to be announced soon.
"Through D and AllThingsDigital.com, we've remained focused on exploring and analyzing the impact the digital revolution has had on every facet of our lives," said Walt Mossberg, co-founder and co-executive producer of All Things Digital. "With D: Dive Into Mobile, we're advancing that commitment by taking a closer look at the critically important mobile space."
Building upon the mission of the D conference, D: Dive Into Mobile will drill down to the innovations influencing the mobile space and the implications upon the strategic direction of the many businesses involved.
"The mobile arena, as Walt and I have long said, is now the new battleground in the next phase of the digital evolution," added Kara Swisher, co-founder and co-executive producer of All Things Digital. "So, it's the perfect first dive for our new conference offering."
Much like the format for the D, now in its 9th year, D: Dive Into Mobile will put top players in mobile space to the test onstage for unrehearsed, unscripted and unexpected interviews.
And, as always, no PowerPoints, no panels and definitely no pontificating allowed.
Live blogs and photos from each session will be available on AllThingsD.com during each interview, with video highlights posted shortly afterwards.
