Smartphone/Tablet Demographics and Predictions

deloitte.gifDeloitte have a new free report (pdf) on their Technology, Media & Telecommunications Predictions 2014. While the report’s emphasis is on predictions, there are lots of current numbers to back up the trends. Topics include how smartphones and tablets are likely to be the main engines of growth in the living room ecosystem, how there has been a surge in ‘compact’ (small) tablets and why phablets are not a fad. 


There are charts of smartphone penetration by age as well as more detailed information such as weekly IM usage and weekly social network usage. At the end of the report there’s a section on ruggedised devices and how $250 rugged devices are likely to ignite the business case for enterprise rugged solutions.
