Apps, Browsers and Platforms! Oh, My! Everyone is talking about apps and the mobile web. With an app for everything, it comes down to more than just Angry Birds; it’s about access to information, fun and more. There is a lot more to apps and the mobile web than the average consumer thinks about: Which app store to use? How to keep the mobile web safe and secure? Will apps become more important than the web or are they a passing fad?

Our guest this week on MashUp Radio will be Mahi de Silva, Opera Software’s executive vice president of Consumer Mobile. Opera develops the Opera Web browser, a high-quality, multi-platform product for a wide range of platforms, operating systems and embedded Internet products – including Mac, PC and Linux computers, mobile phones and PDAs, game consoles, and other devices like the Nintendo Wii, DS, and more. Opera’s vision is to deliver the best Internet experience on any device.

Mahi is responsible for commercial activities for Opera’s consumer mobile products and services. Before joining Opera, Mahi was co-founder and CEO of AdMarvel, Inc., the global leader in mobile advertising platforms, acquired by Opera in 2010. Prior to AdMarvel, Mahi co-founded Frengo Corporation, a mobile social media platform. Mahi also spent 10 years at VeriSign, where he was part of the startup management team. From 2002 to 2006, he served as senior vice president and general manager of Wireless and Digital Content Services at VeriSign, where he built the world’s leading mobile messaging and mobile entertainment business with revenues exceeding $600M per year. Prior to VeriSign, he served in various technology leadership roles at Taligent, Apple and NCR Corporation.
