For the sixth consecutive year, ABI Research puts a different twist on the traditional December activity of surveying the year just past and speculating about what the new one will bring, with a white paper titled "What's Not Going to Happen in 2011." The paper is available for free download from the company's website.
As 2010 winds down, we seem to be receiving conflicting messages. Economic recovery is slow, but corporate profits are up. Budgets are tight, yet innovative companies continue to rewrite the rule-books. So it's a bold pundit who will make definitive statements about what is going to happen even in the short-term. That doesn't stop many from trying though, often with hilarious results.
Slightly easier is discerning the developments that are unlikely to take place in the coming year. So nearly two dozen of ABI Research's experts have put their heads together to debunk some of the most-hyped predictions about what will happen in tech-related industries around the world. They cover a vast range of topics including mobile devices and applications, femtocells, mobile commerce, home entertainment, 4G, Wi-Fi, telematics and location-based services, mobile networks and mobile Internet devices, home networking, automotive technologies, RFID and NFC, and much more.
Will mobile advertising hit critical mass in 2011? Will we all be gaming in The Cloud?
Will cars drive themselves? Will Google TV survive?
Will the iPad's market position erode? Will TD-LTE kill WiMAX?
With its mix of expert opinion, critical assessments and wry humor, "What's NOT Going to Happen in 2011" makes for a lively and informative read.
