As the current year comes to a close we are curious about the upcoming trends the new year will bring. If you’ve followed our blog in 2010 you have heard us talk about mobile A LOT. Not only does the statistical trending data support this, but we have the customer requests for mobile apps in nearly all markets to back it up.
See past blogs on: Filmtrailer App, Cinematografo.it, Windows 7 on CineTrailer, iBest Movie App, My Movies iPhone App as just a few examples of this trend. However, we are aware that not everyone is on the mobile train when it comes to normal every day use.
Recent data from comScore seems to suggest that smartphone subscribers in the U.S. lean towards the 25 – 44 age group. That’s a good amount of the population at 51% of smartphone subscribers and 36% of total mobile subscribers which means there is reason to believe this could be an increasing trend.
Apple is leading the way with the iPhone, but it will be interesting to see how usage will be affected with Google and Microsoft also in the market. According to research posted from IDC in the New York Times, they predict that “half of the 2.1 billion people who regularly use the Internet will do so using non-PC devices” in 2011. That’s a pretty big prediction if we do say so ourselves, but one we will definitely keep our eye on in the new year.
