iBeacon Deployment - DX3 Toronto Mobile Innovation Store
By Graham K. Rogers
This week sees DX3, Canada's marketing and advertising retail conference trade show, which is being held at the Toronto Metro Conference Center. LXR & Co have created a Mobile Innovation Store where a number of innovators are demonstrating their products, including Estimote, the maker of the iBeacon I recently looked at.
Jordan Kahn of 9to5 Mac is in Toronto this week and he had a hands-on with the iBeacon experience in the Mobile Innovation Store. The article also includes a video that demonstrates part of the iBeacon experience (as well as other products).
He also links to ThirdShelf, a developer whose service allows retailers to create branded mobile apps and loyalty programs for their businesses. The link asks users to register and more information will be sent later. An immediate email asked me to provide some more details of my needs.
Also looking at the DX3 Mobile Innovation Store is Darrell Etherington on TechCrunch with similar information to Jordan Kahn. Instead of a video, there is a slideshow with this article.
