TBD, Silicon Valley, California

Join us for this lunch meeting as we discuss how messaging is hot again. Red hot. The price for WhatsApp has drawn the attention of Silicon Valley, Wall Street, and even the "man on the street".

Modern messaging brings together HQ voice, text, media sharing, location sharing, context and more, and is further enriched by presence. Now the stage is set for a battle between OTT providers, classic portals, and the carriers.
