>> Qualcomms involvement and do they see them as a competitive thread in the wearable market.
I think they have clearly stated that in their investment press release. They expect Ineda to be the operating system for the IoT. This a new thinking to find a way to differentiate from ARM which does not offer any real competitive edge where it has become very common
>> True. But then, I don't think anyone is crystal clear about what exactly we want to do with those "interoperable" data...
I think we will have companies emerge that will figure that out soon. In that case, all users' data will be under their control and they can sell them to companies that need them. Yes, for that to happen, it will mean many things will not be free on the web.

Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
