By YE12, more than 30% of interactive videos invoked for collaborative purposes will be satisfied through cloud computing.

By 2013, more than 25% of the content that workers see in a day will be dominated by pictures, video or audio.

A surplus of existing monitors, low prices for new monitors, and easy connectivity will enable more than 60% of knowledge workers to routinely use at least three displays as part of their primary PC work spaces by 2015.

Plan for less than 20% of employees being able to replace a laptop with a tablet through 2012.

By 2020, mobile and web AD will have evolved into multichannel application development.

By 2015, mobile Web technologies will have advanced sufficiently such that half of the applications that in 2011 would be written as native apps will be, instead, delivered as Web apps.

By 2013, mobile phones will overtake PCs as the most common Web access device worldwide.

Fewer than 5% of handsets sold in 2014 will support LTE. 75% of tablets sold in mature markets in 2014 will have a screen size of approximately 10”

Android will remain the top smartphone platform in shipment terms through 2015.

Most CIOs should plan to support at least three mobile platforms by 2012.

By 2013, Microsoft will overtake RIM in smartphone shipments.

BlackBerry Bold 9790 and Curve 9380 official

 

 

RIM has announced its two latest BlackBerry 7 smartphones, the Bold 9790 and Curve 9380, the latter being the first Curve to use an all-touch design. Set to go on sale “in the coming weeks” the two phones each have NFC support; the Bold 9790 pairs a 1GHz processor with a touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard, along with 8GB of integrated storage and a microSD card slot.

  • Research In Motion, the maker of BlackBerry devices, on Thursday said that it was open to look at the possibility of setting up regional data centres to avoid a repeat of the outage that affected more than 70 million subscribers across the world.
  • Speaking to Indian media via tele-conference, Mr Patrick Spence, Senior Vice-President and Managing Director, Global Sales & Regional Marketing, RIM, said, “Our immediate focus is on getting back the services to where we would like it to be. We will leave no stone unturned to make sure that this does not repeat. All options, including setting up network architecture with regional hubs, are on the table. If that makes sense, we will do it.” Indian authorities have been asking RIM to set up local servers for security monitoring purpose but so far the company has been unwilling to do so.
  • Globally, RIM has come under sever criticism for having a centralised architecture because of which a snag at its UK centre disrupted services across the world.
  • Although the RIM executive did not give any specific measures that the company will take to pacify angry customers, Mr Spence said that RIM will look at a number of issues including communications with customers, demands for compensation from operators and its architecture, once the services are fully back to normal. He said that although data were flowing normally, the company was monitoring the situation for one more day to make sure that the system was fully back on track.

  • Blackberry smartphones are losing ground to the combined strength of iPhone and Android smartphones, as far as their use at the workplace is concerned, according to a survey of 1,681 U.S.-based workers released Thursday by Forrester Research.

 

  • That finding amplifies what many have known for a while about the entrenched workplace smartphone veteran: the BlackBerry faces trouble from its competitors.

 

  • The BlackBerry, made by Research in Motion, still leads among U.S. workers, with 42%, the survey said, with Apple”s iPhone accounting for 22% and Android devices, 26%.

 

  • The survey also found that nearly half, or 48% of the group, said that they chose the primary smartphone used for their work without considering what their company supports. Only 29% said they chose the smartphone from a list of phones the company supports, while 23% said they had no choice in the matter.

 

  • Often, corporate IT shops will choose BlackBerry smartphones when requiring a worker to use a specific smartphone, partly because of the perceived security benefits, many analysts, including at Forrester, have found. The growth in Android phones and the iPhone — many of them brought to workplaces by workers independently — are forcing IT shops to rethink that decision
