Designing an Optimal Tablet User Experience (Panel Discussion)

As more and more enterprise apps are being delivered on tablets, designing mobile applications is becoming commonplace for user experience professionals. However, designing effective tablet apps is far from trivial. The move from the web to tablets is exposing important new design challenges.
A panel of local experts with experience in designing enterprise-level mobile applications on tablets will discuss the key challenges and opportunities in designing for a tablet. The panel will begin with a brief introductory statement by each panelist followed by a discussion among the panelists and a Q&A session for the audience.
