Hi All - I am giving a talk on "Protecting Mobile Devices" at the upcoming NACACS in Orlando on May 10. This weekend I read a great opinion article on the rapid pace of change in the mobile computing space by Forbes contributor Adam Thierer (full article at http://www.forbes.com/sites/adamthierer/2012/04/01/bye-bye-blackberry-how-long-will-apple-last/
In the piece he shares a few comments and forecasts by industry leaders and analysts from several years ago that have turned out to be wildly incorrect. One of the better examples is the following:
"In March 2007, computing industry pundit John C. Dvorak argued that “Apple should pull the plug on the iPhone” since “There is no likelihood that Apple can be successful in a business this competitive.” Dvorak believed the mobile handset business was already locked up by the era’s major players. “This is not an emerging business. In fact it’s gone so far that it’s in the process of consolidation with probably two players dominating everything, Nokia Corp. and Motorola Inc.”"
Given the tremendous rate of change in the mobile space and the accelerating pace of technological innovation and disruption in the competitive landscape, what are the biggest emerging concerns for users of mobile devices (corporate and individual), and who will be replacing Apple and Google in the future?
