A New Year brings new forecasts – here is a chart of the continuing massive growth in smartphone and tablet shipments – 1.3 billion smartphones and 314 million tablets in 2014 . . . WOW!

The smartphones shipped in 2014 will be nearly 2X the number shipped in 2012.  There will be 2.4X more tablets shipped in 2014 than in 2012.  Those are HUGE numbers.  BI Intelligence has again provided an informative chart projecting smartphone and tablet shipments out to 2018.  We don’t need to tell you that the implications of that growth are far reaching.  Aberdeen has multiple investments that address aspects of this growth.  We are investing in hardware, software, security, content, advertising and platforms that all enable and benefit from this transformation.   Jeb B.
