What CES Tells Us About Our Mobile Future

PCWorld: What CES Tells Us About Our Mobile Future

Galen Gruman notes that this year’s edition of CES was dominated by mobile tools and gadgets. It is a sign, he says, that “the post-PC era has begun in earnest.” How might that change the way your small business operates?

“At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, it’s all about mobile — and mostly about Android. Srictly speaking, that’s not true; there were also plenty of HDTVs, stereo speakers, and other home entertainment wares on display, but the main events have all been about mobile. Naturally, every demo is accompanied by breathless praise by executives of their own “groundbreaking” products — but beyond the hype, is there anything really important coming out of CES?

Yes, there are plenty of products whose chief innovation is a cosmetic change, but in fact CES 2011’s mobile parade reveals key developments for both users and businesses to track in the coming year. After the Las Vegas Convention Center empties out this weekend and everyone returns home, here’s what will continue to matter.”
