I am going to be listening for the way that people react to the ideas Verizon has for their network app store that is independent of a device, and their vision for a network API that is not independent of the carrier.
My friend Andy Abramson recently highlighted the Gizmo5 to Google Voice which can also support Skype connection. For the end user, this is great stuff the more you can make a free call the better.
From the view of a network operator, the question is why are these types of applications compelling? Is the price the only thing that matters? Or is the value connectivity something that should be enabled on their network.
I will be very interested to hear the conversations at the event.
