We don’t link to whole articles too much here at GoMo News – unless we learn something new. Guess what! We learned a lot from the article below from emarketer and some great graphics too.
Mobile Augmented Reality (Mobile AR) is a topic on fire. It brings mobile to the “now” and enables a different type of visualisation or experience.

I am very excited to be moderating a panel on the very subject at Mobile AR Conference during CTIA in San Diego on 11th October.
Please feel free to contact me for a chat on Mobile AR before the panel or we will be doing a special video feature around the panel and event – so there are a couple of sponsorship opportunities also available.
See you there, Bena

According to mobile thought leader Tomi Ahonen, we look at our mobile phones 150 times per day on average – more than any other medium.
