10 Telecom Predictions for 2012

2012: The Year of Enterprise Mobility

The desktop computer is already taking a backseat to devices that give workers seamless access from anywhere, anytime, and that trend will continue into 2012 and beyond. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2015, smartphones and tablets will outnumber PCs 4 to 1.

With the release of the iPad 3 predicted in early 2012, along with some other worthy rivals like the Kindle Fire and Microsofts anticipated OS platform Windows 8, tablets will certainly continue to shape how we do business.

Also in 2012, look for the mobile enterprise application market to explode, as more customers demand the user-friendly applications they enjoy on the consumer side to grow up for the business world.
