The amount of real estate available for mobile ads, including apps, websites, games, mobile search, mobile social networking, and streaming audio and video, is enormous. With $3.4 billion in spending in 2012, marketers are staking positions in these new ad formats, but the most basic question regarding ad placement is still under discussion: does mobile advance sales, brand equity, both, or neither?

- Is the phone too personal for ads?
- Is the phone too small or slow for advertising?
- Are mobile ads effective?
- Apps: Best deployed above the line or below?
