Top Engineers and Evangelists from NAVTEQ and Other Category Leaders to Shine Spotlight on One of the Industry's Keystone Mobile App Services

LAS VEGAS, May 24 — (PRNewswire) — The explosive utilization of location-based services in the global Mobile App arena will take center stage as top engineers and evangelists dive into the details showcased at the Location-Based Services Developer Track at APPCON™ 2010, the world's only mobile App-centric developer and business conference and expo set for August 24-26 in Las Vegas.  APPCON™ announced today that Michael Moore, Technical Consultant for Chicago-based NAVTEQ's Network for Developers, will be highlighting the event's location-based services developer track.  Other notable presenters will include Derek Smith, Chicago-based SimpleGeo.com engineer, and a representative from SkyHookWireless, Boston.

Mr. Moore is a 20-year IT industry veteran whose pre-NAVTEQ C.V. reads like a bibliography of Mobile App operating systems, complex implementation and deployment expertise provided to a wide range of devices and carriers and in support of private and governmental entities in the UK, Germany, India and Australia. Moore heads up a growing group of presenters that will discuss the technical and developmental aspects of this mushrooming subcategory of the Mobile App realm.

"APPCON's™ inclusion of this sub-event underscores the category's importance in the Mobile App marketplace," commented Bryan A. Scott, president of Taptopia, a provider of mobile technology solutions for event organizers, convention centers and their related vendors. "The continued development and roll-out of smartphones with location-based services is a must given consumer demand."

In addition to Mr. More, other presenters at APPCON's™ mobile App sub conference will include Derek Smith, Chicago-based SimpleGeo.com engineer, and a representative from SkyHookWireless, Boston.  All presenters have a solid understanding of the importance of location-based services and their usage and impact within the cascading mobile App marketplace.
