I came across two excellent presentations delivered by Stephanie Rieger in Dallas and London recently. These presentations provide very good overview of the current development and future trend of mobile devices.
Beyond the mobile web
It’s about people, not devices…
Thanks to Dr. Seungyun Lee, I was able to keep up what was going on at 2011 Mobile World Congress even though I didn’t make the trip to Barcelona last month. Below is an excellent presentation given by Dr. Lee.
The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development in the State of Victoria, Australia released 2 publications in January 2011 on iPads in Education. These 2 digital books are free to read online or download. They are useful for schools whose plan to introduce iPad in their classrooms.
iPads for Learning – Getting Started: Classroom ideas for learning with the iPad: Resource book for schools
iPads for Learning – 21 Steps to 1-to-1 Success: a handbook for planning, preparing, implementing and evaluating iPad programs
It is not surprising that 2010 was the year mobile connected the world. Armed with stunning statistics, facts, and visual cues, Mobile Future produced this informative video. The video takes a tour of key consumer and technology mobile trends across an eventful year. Some highlights of the video include:
Massive increase in apps downloaded:
- 5 billion apps downloaded – up from 300 million in 2009
Whopping expansion of location-based services
- 5 million Foursquare users – up from 200,000 users in 2009
Surge in mobile social media platforms
- 347 percent growth in Twitter mobile usage
- 200 million mobile Facebook Users
- 100 million YouTube videos played on mobile devices everyday
It is anticipated that mobile data traffic and apps will continue this phenomenal growth in 2011. I think the mobile future is full of excitement and opportunity.
