Impact of $35 Tablet (Aakash) on the Mobile Eco System

By Dinesh Srirangpatna

The media tablet is roughly segmented into two markets (premium - Apple) and non premium (Amazon, Google, Barnes and Noble etc). The fastest growth is coming in at the $200 and under tablet category. While the $200 tablet is a great price, it is not affordable for many, in developing countries. Entrepreneurs in India are targeting consumers with a new category of $50 and under tablet. This dovetails nicely into IDC's 3rd platform prediction (billions of users, with millions of apps)

By Kimberly Knickle

If you've been reading our manufacturing research for some time, you know that we've grouped the influential IT vendors in the manufacturing industry using the acronym SHOMI (pronounced "show me") to represent SAP, HP, Oracle, Microsoft, and IBM. Manufacturers invest heavily in these SHOMI vendors for IT applications, infrastructure, hardware, services and, sometimes, even mobile devices. It's not unusual for manufacturers to first investigate what the SHOMI vendors can provide today or will

Much has been written about Wireless LANs (WLANs) over the past few years, especially as enterprise IT has rolled out large scale wireless networks as overlays on their wired ethernet deployments. So one may ask- what's new with enterprise networks, especially as it relates to WLANs. It's the smart mobile devices- stupid.
