GP BULLHOUND TECHNOLOGY PREDICTIONS 2011

2011 PREDICTIONS:
GOOGLE’S ANDROID DISTANCING APPLE’S IOS

Investors Ready to Open Pockets to Innovative Technologies In 2011
For the fourth year running, GP Bullhound is publishing its Technology Predictions for the upcoming year. As the global economy emerges from the financial crisis, we anticipate businesses and investors alike will capitalize their resources to invest in the next wave of innovation in 2011. Accordingly, many of our predictions seek to streamline the way we approach everyday tasks. In 2011, we anticipate consumers will take another step towards wireless by adopting shopping, dating, gambling, payments and even household management on mobile. The rise in augmented reality adoption will complement this, as we continue to merge the information on the web with our mobile lifestyles. Moreover, as mobile applications continue to proliferate we expect developer-friendly open platform benefits will extend Google’s Android lead over Apple’s iOS. In the wake of the explosion of mobile applications, we expect vendors to step up to provide real-time analysis and predictions of consumer behaviours. Additionally, we expect increasing mobility and pace of life will drive users to abridge communication messaging, favouring short messaging formats over blogs and long format emails. In another move towards increased mobility, we anticipate games will move
