„Year of the tablet“ you can hear at every corner. But I believe it is far more than a product category highlighting years 2011/2012. The whole development goes far beyond what has happened the last years in technology. Looking at Healthcare with VitaDock App and devices to check your essential body data. Patagonia to promote used clothes on eBay and aiming to be eco-friendly that way. And what about the gaming console? When are they ready for 3D? How many devices do I need in the future in my living room? Homeserver, Hybrid TV… But hopefully all connected with DNLA. Product lifecycles are shortening every year so that it becomes even more important what you have in your product portfolio, and what you can deliver. Woo-hoo!
