Strategy Analytics says it has identified ten key trends it expects to emerge in the mobile handset industry over the next decade. Neil Mawston from Strategy Analytics says, "Such new form factors as the transformer and rollable displays will revolutionize media phone design." By 2018, every handset will effectively be a Smartphone, with a wide screen, sizeable keyboard and dense battery.”
I’m not sure what he means by the “Transformer”, maybe a cell phone that turns into a robot. Other key trends identified sound like things we see now and aren’t so farfetched.
To see all ten trends you have to spend the big bucks to buy the report, but the ones mentioned in the PR for the report include the ability for consumers to design, purchase, update and repair their mobile phones online. The report says multi-radio chipsets will be the norm as well with some devices having as many as 10 radios by 2018.
