2011: The Year of Mobile

Mobile took over the world in 2011 but people also had their first taste of tablets.

As I wrote yesterday, the future hot gadget will be a mini tablet with a built in phone.  Apple is leading this hardware development while Amazon tees up its own mobile deals.

The two companies will essentially produce the same mini tablet concept; one major difference being that Apple is retrofitting the iPhones slick retina screen display for all its products.

The only pieces holding the computer era together is the keyboard and complete Internet experience.  Soon enough the only piece of hardware you’ll need is the one that fits into your hand and pops open an augmented keyboard.  Cool, huh?
