James Pearce is Vice President of Technology at dotMobi, where he is responsible for domain name technologies, content tools, the company’s developer community and applicable open standards.
He brings more than 10 years of experience in the mobile technology sector to the dotMobi team. In addition to his work on ensuring the quality of content, Pearce is a mobile standards expert and has worked with a number of standards bodies, including the W3C Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group, which aims to bring a better mobile Internet experience to consumers.
Prior to dotMobi, Pearce served as CTO at Argogroup, a position he held following the 2001 acquisition of AnywhereYouGo.com, a top destination for mobile developers. While at Argogroup, Pearce specialized in user experience optimization for mobile and converged applications. He assisted mobile operators, handset manufacturers and content providers in testing, monitoring and developing their applications and services to improve the quality of the mobile experience. At AnywhereYouGo.com, Pearce launched the Wireless Internet Lab, a professional services environment that allowed mobile developers to test and validate their mobile applications before launching.

Why are they participating at MEX?
I have worked in the area of mobile user experience for more than eight years, and bring a rich understanding of how the mobile medium and wireless data services have emerged. More importantly, with dotMobi, I want to help empower the next stage of mobile’s growth: to become an integral part of the Internet experience. User satisfaction is an essential part of that evolution, and I hope this event can bring that to attention.
