Mobile Tech

The 5 forces that will shape mobile tech

  • Broadband everywhere
  • Extremo Centrino
  • Tablet PC
  • Wireless apps appear
  • No clear winners in wireless hardware

Speaking of tablet PC’s, Apple is really missing the boat right now by not having a product of their own. My supervisor brought one into a technology group meeting yesterday and a couple people that were present immediately announced that they each wanted one of their own (and one is pretty pro Apple). I still want a 12″ Powerbook G4 myself, but I certainly wouldn’t turn down a tablet if they bought me one at work. Apple already has all the necessary technology so I really think it’s only a matter a time; hopefully they’ll just end up being fashionably late to the tablet party.
