The upside of the mobile internet  

Upside of the Mobile Internet

Mobile (including communications, commerce, platforms, and software and applications) comes a close second to cloud in its potential to shake up consumer and enterprise markets.

Three key findings highlight the onward march of mobile anytime, everywhere:


  • Smartphones and tablets lead as top tech breakthroughs, followed by cloud and storage. What is truly transformational is the combination of the mobile internet connected to the cloud as an enabler of new business models.
  • When it comes to their home country, respondents feel that mobile device manufacturers (such as Apple) outrank other types of businesses for tech innovation leadership.
  • Roughly one-third say that internet companies are the emerging champions in the fast-developing mobile commerce ecosystem.

These trends are led by the advanced mobile communications markets of Japan and Korea, big and growing mobile bases in China and India, and the fast uptake of next-generation mobile standards around the globe.
