Here’s Part 7 of our predictions:
- Cloud computing: This trend started in 2010 but continues to go mainstream.
- The battle of tablets: Just because the first battle went in Apple’s direction does not mean that wannabe iPad Killers have given up the fight. Competitors still want to get into the action and capture some of the marketshare. From the media’s perspective, it’s a two-horse race between the Kindle Fire and iPad. We expect a third option to gain some traction, but the iPad will continue to dominate.
- The three most important tech trends will be mobile, mobile, mobile. Unless the three most important trends are social, social, social. For example, enterprise technology now needs not only to have an intuitive interface, it also must be accessible on iPads.
- Gaming is not just for kids. Gaming will continue to be integrated into business and training apps to keep people engaged and entertained.
