Arguing Apple vs Android and apps vs web is fun, but so 2011. So, thinking about 2012, a handful of mobile trends are worth tracking:

  1. Transactions/Authentication (NFC , Square etc.)
  2. External sensors and connected devices (Bluetooth 4.0/Internet of Things)
  3. Voice (Siri vs Google)
  4. Presence (Moving beyond check-ins)
  5. Home Hub (Airplay, HDMI outputs, home controls)
  6. Connected cars (3G-enabled, streaming Internet replacing AM/FM etc.)
  7. 4G (Speed changes behavior)

I am collecting links on these and other mobile topics on Delicious.
