Prediction: “The end of the smartphone — it’s obsolete!”

What‘s the point of a smartphone?

What do smartphone users really value? The “smart” bit, for connectivity and multiple functions? Or the “phone” bit, for simple voice communication? According to a 2012 Mediametrie study in France, smartphones are primarily valued for personal organization (83%) and connectivity (75%). Communication is only essential to 65% of users — almost the same as entertainment, at 64%. 50% of users can’t do without email or camera functions, and 35% have to have GPS.

In other words, the phone function is not essential, so any device that meets these varied needs and is more ergonomic should be able to topple the descendants of the 1980’s carphone.

Under threat from a new innovation

In the high-tech field, the trend for “wearables” — smart devices that are worn rather than carried — is booming.

Weaving the Threads of the Digital Tapestry

As the information age progresses, the prevalence of digital technology continues to grow at an exponential rate. By 2020, the ‘digital universe’ is expected to reach 44 trillion gigabytes.

You don’t have to look far to find examples of how the digital revolution is changing industries around the world. Digital technology is being used to more efficiently identify customer needs, reduce costs, and improve the quality of products and services.

Platform Architecture for the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things is mostly things—things with microprocessors and operating systems. This means many millions of possible security points that need to be guarded against hackers as much or even more than the large server farms.

All things must evolve—human anatomy, national constitutions, and religions—to handle the mercurial world around us. History is replete with examples of species gone extinct due to an inability to cope with environmental transformations. In industry, companies like Kodak and BlackBerry famously failed to adapt fast enough to consumer and technology trends.
