Mobile Trends 2020

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

Rudy De Waele invited me to participate in a broad view of the coming decade. An impressive set of visionaries from across the mobile ecosystem provided their perspectives on the next 10 years. Set aside some time to be able to absorb the presentation below (you’ll want to view it in full screen).

Here are the 5 trends I contributed:

  1. Just as microprocessors have been built into virtually every product that has a power source, over the next ten years, it will become expected that wireless connectivity will be built into virtually every product that has a microprocessor.
  2. Businesses will redefine virtually every internal process and virtually every service they offer customers to leverage wireless access to information and contextual data to create new value

    for customers, to grow their addressable markets, and to reduce their operating costs.

  3. Fixed line broadband will overshoot the performance needs of the market, resulting in increasing data cord cutting as individuals, families, and businesses appreciate the value of mobility more than the value of excess bandwidth.
  4. By the end of the decade, mobile devices will be thought of first for the applications they run rather than for their ability to make voice calls.
  5. In the U.S., the Obama administration will stimulate significant expansion of the mobile market through regulatory policies (e.g. reduced backhaul costs) and direct and indirect stimulus investments (e.g. wireless broadband, smart grid).

  2. Businesses invest in productivity gains
  3. 4G fixed line replacement
  4. Irrelevance of 3G single mode
  5. Businesses broaden their internal M2M deployments
  6. Wireless connectivity becomes increasingly popular in consumer electronics
  7. Applications for businesses
  8. Smartphone adoption
  9. Mobility built into processes
  10. Mobility built into services

Research is good. Free highlights from expensive research reports are great. Here are some recent headlines:

and process, our greatest inhibitor is the mindset represented by those who defend the tethering of products and processes to specific places. This mindset is fueled by the investments that have been made that establish power in the companies, departments, and individuals that stand in the way of mobilizing our lives and our businesses. These investments are not always in hard assets, but often are investments of time and experience to establish intellectual and relational assets. We should expect our assault on these ways to be defended to the death. Here are recent examples:

Converging products into a cellphone is one way that mobility is getting built into every product, but it’s not the only way. Every month, I’ll focus on devices that are integrating the power of mobility into products themselves in ways that create new value for the customer. Power up!
