I already announced my involvement with ABA Techshow 2013 beginning April 4-6, 2013 in Chicago. I hope you all plan on joining in the events. This is my first, and from the reports of others, it’s going to be fun. I know, because I’m putting my finishing touches on my two presentations.
The first is Tablet Wars on Friday at 8 a.m. You can see the from the description that we’re covering a lot of cutting-edge tablet tech trends.
I’m joining the panel with Tom Mighell (iPad) and James Province (Windows/TabletPC). This year will definitively be a “war like you’ve never seen before.” Whether that’s a good thing, or a bad thing is still in the air.
The second topic is The 4×4 Challenge: Top Apps for Every Platform.
I’m excited for this presentation, since it’s going to be all about apps. We’ll definitely have the four most commonly-used activities, and I’m sure we’ll introduce you to a couple small ones. I’m joining the Gods of Tech, Dan Pinnington (Blackberry), Mark Unger (iPhone/iOS), and Ben Schorr (Windows), to discuss all things apps. This is 4 platforms in 60 minutes, with tons of apps.
I’m also interested in Android by Example, which happens on Saturday morning. Should be an excellent showcase of Android devices and how to get the most out of your tablet or smartphone. I suspect you’ll see a showdown between the top Android phones and tablets, including Google’s beauty, the Nexus 10.
All these programs are under the Tablets & Smartphones track, which starts April 5.
I’m looking forward to a lot of the programs, including the presentations on paperless productivity, litigation technology, and storyboarding.
I’m also working out some details for a Taste of Techshow dinner, probably on Friday night. If and when I get the details for that, I’ll obviously let you know.
