AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets President to discuss influence of wireless in emerging devices, smartphones, tablets at CONNECTIONS(TM) Digital Living Conference this month
Mobility a key factor in digital lifestyle as tablets exceed 12% penetration in U.S. broadband households
The international research firm will host CONNECTIONS™: The Digital Living Conference and Showcase on June 28-30 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Mr. Lurie will present on June 29 at 4:00 p.m., discussing initiatives to bring wireless to a host of new devices and applications, including tablets, netbooks, laptops, and embedded computing devices.
"The tablet has achieved over 12% penetration among U.S. broadband households in just one year since the relaunch and reinvigoration of this product category, thanks to the iPad," said Kurt Scherf, VP, Principal Analyst, Parks Associates. "By 2015, more than one-half of the tablets sold will have native mobile broadband connectivity. Glenn Lurie's insight into consumer trends and mobility provides a comprehensive vision of their ongoing impact on the digital lifestyle."
Mr. Lurie is responsible for AT&T's ongoing operations and relationship with Apple Inc., and he led negotiations to bring the iPhone to AT&T.
