There are 5 billion mobile subscriptions in the developing world. Users in these emerging markets come to mobile technology with a significantly different perspective and needs from those of us who’ve helped shape mobile’s evolution throughout the past 10 years. At our panel, you’ll learn from our first-hand experience being in-country what you can’t from just reading. We’ll share what we learned from five projects designing mobile payments and loyalty apps for consumers and merchants in Latin America, Africa, and the US. We worked with global brands like Coke and Pepsi to small, local merchants and saw how our clients’ first-world experience in mobile differs greatly from their customers in emerging markets. There’s no cookie-cutter way to create a mobile product in emerging mobile markets. Since that user experience is substantially different from the touchscreens most of us use today, we had to rethink the mobile experience by getting to know these users really well.
