Helio's Leo Jun to Deliver Mobile Games Seminar Keynote
CMP Media announced recently that Helio Head of Games Leo Jun would deliver a keynote address entitled "Nurturing the Mobile Gaming Experience" at the upcoming Mobile Games Seminar. The event, taking place September 27-28 in Los Angeles, is intended to provide more in-depth technical sessions than the Spring GDC Mobile, also put on by CMP.
Prior to Helio, Jun served as senior manager of Korean operator SK Telecom's global division, where he planned and coordinated carrier-level partnerships, ring-back-tone, and music on demand services.
Helio is a joint venture between SK Telecom and Earthlink. The MVNO is competing for the same young demographic as Boost and the now-defunct Amp'd, and has gained a lot of early traction thanks to an emphasis on unique, sleek hardware form factors, most notably the Helio Ocean.
Other Mobile Games Seminar speakers include PeopleJam's Robert Tercek, MoFactor's John Szedar, and Nokia's Dan Scott, among others.
