  • 7. Introduction / About the report User Experience Classification The mobile phone far extends the use of communication for the consumer. With phones becoming more intelligent - they follow the consumer throughout his daily life. Consumers are using smartphones to assist them in managing and improving their daily assignments. As such, they want their mobile device to be best protected and fully active (charged) everywhere they go. Consumers seek devices that reflect their personal identity (follow “Self expression”) and can be adjusted to their way of life (follow “Lifestyle”). Consumers are using smart accessories to improve the basic features of the mobile device (follow “Upgrade”) and to enhance their activities in games, music, and photography. With technology becoming more complicated, consumers are in search of easy to handle products (follow “Effortlessness”) and they seek to optimize functional solutions and synchronize between systems or substances (follow “Optimization”). To fully enjoy smart utilities, apps alone are no longer satisfying – it is required to combine additional hardware to allow consumers to better accomplish their daily assignments. In 2011 we see a new emerging market of intelligent solutions that are carried by sophisticated devices added to the smartphone. 7© Copyright TrendsSpotting, all rights reserved
