I have luxury of spending portion of my time looking at and learning about exciting new technologies—I’d like to share a few of those with you this evening.

  • For those with simple cell phones with no data plan—good news! A recent study from ABI Research shows that Mobile Cloud Computing will change the face of the mobile application world by 2014. Mobile Cloud Computing is the new approach to mobile application that uses the mobile Web to support application performance instead of handset processing power and storage taking the brunt of the work. Because of this, mobile applications will travel down the line of device types from smartphones to entry-level phones, expectedly becoming even more popular generating a projected $20 billion in revenue by 2014. ABI Research believes that in 2009 less than 5 percent of laptops and netbooks have embedded modems. However over the long-term, the attachment rates will reach significant levels. In 2014, 48 percent of laptops and netbooks shipping will include 3G or 4G data connectivity.Another factor will shape the market in the mid-term, says Orr. "In 2011 and 2012 we will see the first significant nationwide access to mobile WiMAX and LTE networks in multiple geographic regions.
  • Single converged device is called a cell phone. Today, they’re referred to as Smart phones, but that won’t last long. Every phone will have these capabilities within two years. Expectations?
