Background (The market) Five years ago, the mobile landscape was, a world apart from where we are today. While smartphones existed, the devices were really more like PDAs with a phone built-in, rather than mobile computing devices as we know them today. There were mobile phone apps, but the app store concept as we know it now was still years away. And while many mobile phones had the ability to access the web, the experience was far different in speed and in scope than it is today.
Background (The market) Now? We ve transitioned from keypad to touchscreen, from 2G to 3G broadband, from social as an afterthought, to social as an intrinsic part of the mobile web … and to a world full of apps. Whilst it s almost impossible to predict the next five years, we can imagine that mobile devices will continue to get faster, more complex and slowly but surely replace workstations and notebooks in a range or portable/wireless devices.
