Mobile devices range in flavour and colours and grow at different rates globally. Expecting 70% growth over the following 3 years one of these units will produce a £70 billion market and nearly 150 million pieces will be sold according to Barclays analytics.
To put this in perspective it’s 3 times as many Apple iPhones sold last year.
Can you believe Apple do not make one any of these units…..
The device goes under the name of Phablet. It’s a supersized smart phone near the size of a tablet.
The rise of Phabletism
Analysts expect the Phablet to be the computing device of the decade. The combination and accessibility of a Phablet far outweighs the cumbersome turmoil of PC use and removes the constant search for the consumers all encompassing device.
Samsung are making great headway in this market currently but here are a list of other brands currently gathering momentum:
SAMSUNG – GLOBAL
ZTE & HUAWEI – CHINAN
HTC & LENOVO – TAIWAN
VIZIO – AMERICA
Will they become the redundant minidisc of 2013 ? Will they stay in market and take off?
Yes is probably the answer.
Whilst consumers imagine them to be large bulky items once they have actually used them and found that they are only used for making phone calls for a tiny percentage of the time that which was not obvious becomes glaringly realistic; its a mobile Phone, PC and media centre and i really will use it because i don’t have to carry two devices.
Emerging markets cannot get enough of Phablets……
It doesn’t seem that Apple are following suit, whats your thoughts on Phablets and Apple refusing to enter this developing consumer monster.
Could the iPad mini soon start making calls? Have your say below…….
OK we understand that this is not likely to be Microsoft involved in the less than ethical way of recycling an old Apple Mac monitor using a an illegal weapon. It does however sum up the mood in the Microsoft computer collective as they witness the rebirth of an old foe who is set to surpass and potentially swallow the technology superpower within 5 years.
Financial czar Andy Zaky who writes for a variety of different sites has estimated that computer giant apple are set to be worth around 300 billion within the next 4 years. To put this in perspective the Saudi Arabia nuclear budget is the same figure. in the past 5 years Apple has seen a surge in sales of Apple Mac computers, laptops, Ipad and Iphones due to it’s groundbreaking technological advances.
This now leaves a staggering range of business and technological opportunities not least being the possibility of the takeover of Microsoft. Harnessing the infrastructure of the epicentre of the computing world could allow Apple to take us where no corporation has been before.
Set to make 6 times as much money as Microsoft
This sort of money could finance wars, rebuild countries and feed the world twice over.
It comes at a price like most global conquests however as the Apple Mac recycle workers article pointed out in a feature outlining how the computer company recycled staff faster than it’s ipad production due to the miserable conditions they were made to endure.
Our children could be growing up inside an apple mac in future.
Where will this new found global empire take us as we follow our recycling news through 2011 onwards.
We will feature articles about Mac recycling and the Apple mac surge regularly so stay tuned for our next update.
