A combined MobileBeat and GamesBeat will take place in San Francisco next week. July 12-13 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco will see a group of some of the most interesting minds in the mobile and gaming industries will gather to discuss what’s next for mobile.

Great speakers include Nolan Bushnell, the father of video games, Jason Spero, Head of Mobile for Google, David Williams, VP of Mobile Products for AT&T, and many more. There will be plenty of great information shared, new products launched, and as usual, lots of great conversations to be had between sessions.

I’m particularly looking forward to the keynote from Nolan Bushnell and many of the GamesBeat talks.
