Eight Trends To Watch In Mobile Computing

Yet even in the wake of this growth and popularity, phone manufacturers, service providers and others in the mobile industry face a number of stiff challenges. Competition is more intense than ever and profit margins are being squeezed. The pressure on companies to differentiate themselves through innovative services - created and delivered at breakneck speed - is rising.
