5 Predictions for Mobile Tech in 2013

Interesting article about trends in mobile for 2013:

Sales figures for mobile devices reached new heights in 2012. Market research firm Gartner predicted tablet sales would near 120 million, about doubling the total sold in 2011. In addition, the number of active smartphones eclipsed 1 billion during the past year. That’s one for every seven people on the planet. And while it took almost two decades to reach 1 billion active smartphones, research firm Strategy Analytics projects there will be 2 billion by 2015, fueled by growth in developing economies in China, India and Africa.

It’s not just phones and tablets though. All sorts of smart mobile technology flourished in 2012, from watches and wristbands to glasses that can project video on the inside of the lenses. Speaking of glasses, in April, Google sent the tech world into a tizzy when it unveiled plans for a futuristic headset called Project Glass.

Based on many of the announcements coming out of CES, I agree 2013 will be all about:

    • Brand Wars Will Drive Innovation
    • No NFC Mobile Payment, Yet
    • Flexible Smartphones
    • The Future of Smartphone Cameras
    • Wearable Tech
