An international study of consumers expectations for the future of mobile technology
The next 10 years promise huge developments and change in technology and the connected world. The Internet of Things will be larger, mobile networks stronger and more far-reaching, and devices smarter and more powerful. Consumers, companies, device manufacturers and mobile operators alike will all have to be ready for what the future holds.
To give us all an idea of what could be on the horizon, and to help mobile operators prepare for what will be expected of them, we asked 1,200 young people from all over the world to help predict what mobile technology will look like in 10 years’ time. They were asked a wide variety of questions—assembled with input from Applied Futurist
Tom Cheesewright , and Growth Marketer/Tech Crunch columnist
Dan Kaplan —covering topics such as authentication, expectations of network coverage, transport, mHealth, workplaces, payments, banking and more.
The results are eye-opening, especially when you compare and contrast the trends between different countries. The findings have been compiled into a special analysis report, Connected Living 2025, where consumers’ expectations are revealed, and challenges in business practices for mobile operators are raised.
