What Will 2011 Hold for Mobile?

Predictions for a booming industry

Mobile was huge in 2010.

The devices themselves became more technologically advanced as they got faster and more powerful. Many companies released “smartphones” to adequately fill the market. Some of the more popular ones include the iPhone, iPad, and Android.

The evolution in these phones comes with the development of apps, which allow users to do a variety of activities directly on their phone. Chances are, if you have an interest in something, there’s probably at app for it.

Recently we published an article on the 2011 predictions for online advertising and one on the news media. Below we’ve listed five predictions for mobile in 2011 from the folks at Mashable. These include:

  1. Tablet mania hits a fever pitch
