For the moment, it seems that the iPad is the only tablet that matters. While it’s difficult to get a direct measure of the numbers of types of tablets out there, there are a number of ways to approximate those numbers through indirect means.
Before we get back to the serious business of mobile industry statistics, let’s have a little fun. We’ll share some photos of mobile products that we at CTS most emphatically do not recommend.
We continue with our look at the numbers describing the use of mobile technology for 2012, this time looking at how much mobile traffic is moving about the world. Right now, we can measure quarterly traffic in terms of petabytes, but we’re not that far off from having to describe it in exabytes.
Continuing our look at the state of mobile in 2012, we’ll now look at mobile penetration rates worldwide, with data from the European Mobile Industry Observatory, mobiThink and Ericsson.
We’re closing in on the end of 2012, and over the next few days, we’ll look at quantitative and qualitative data on the mobile world. In this installment, we’ll look at Tomi Ahonen’s mobile stats, which indicate that we’ll hit the “Mobile Moment” very, very soon.
Not only are employees doing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), they’re also doing BYOA (Bring Your Own Apps). A recent survey taken by Edge Strategies on behalf of LogMeIn in which 1,200 respondents from SMBs in North America, the UK, Australia and New Zealand shows some pretty interesting numbers.
We’ve seen many BYOD articles with scary titles with phrases like “hidden dangers”, “security threats” and “BYOD kills kittens”, but is BYOD really that bad? We think that these sensationalistic titles are linkbait, and if you actually read the articles, they’ve got some solid, sane and sound advice.
When coming up with a BYOD policy, it’s all too easy to forget about what should happen when employees replace their old BYOD mobile devices. If they’re not careful, they could be leaving both personal and corporate information on the device. This article looks at some statistics on how often people replace their mobile devices and what they do with their old devices, and it also provides a simple four-step plan for decommissioning old BYOD phones and tablets.
You’d think that Moleskine notebooks would be threatened by mobile technologies, but they seem to be thriving in the age of smartphones and tablets. A good amount of the credit has to go to the way they present themselves, which includes their Paper Notebooks vs. Smartphones video.
