Mobile SVG is definitely the hot topic at this year's SVG.Open in Tokyo. Adobe and KDDI seem to have some major announcements lined up, and new mobile-focused authoring environments from ZOOMON and Beatware will be presented. On the technical side, mobile interest shows too, with sessions on wireless geo-localization and mapping.



But the desktop-centric usage of SVG is not forgotten, with an important number of sessions about application development, and the mixing and matching of SVG with other XML technologies such as sXBL, XForms, XHTML. The relationship with other comp(l)eting technologies such as XAML and Flash will also be discussed.



If you happen to be in the Tokyo area next week, you should definitely come and check the conference out. I'll try and report from the conference on this weblog.
