In the wireless industry, everyone has an API. The networks are "exposing" capabilities like location and messaging. Billing and OSS systems are aggregating and analysing customer data and facilitating payments. Voice platforms are being mashed up into communication-enabled business processes.

Handsets are getting native smartphone OS's and secure browser/widget interfaces. The problem is that all these are happening in islands, which means that some simple-sounding new services would, in fact, need to deal with multiple APIs to work from end to end. This presentation looks at the realistic chances of aligning the various initiatives, and identifies the key players involved.
