Why '08 Isn't Mobile's Year - Again
Advertising Age are carrying an article here commenting that each year since about 2000 -- and maybe even before -- has been wrongly touted as the year of mobile marketing. Still, as hardware progresses, their time will come. As Ad Age also note here, although geo-targeting has been promised for some time now, real developments are starting to occur, particularly with social networks and geo-targeted banner serving.
