What will 2012 bring to our mobile world where tablets are trying to take the place of PCs and we’re carrying small computers in our pockets? We’ve already made more than a dozen mobile predictions for the coming year, but oft times, a good predictor of the future is a glimpse at the past. ComScore has done just that with its 2012 Mobile Future in Focus report, published on Thursday.
The free PDF document is available here as a download and I’ve spent some time gleaning insight from the data points to see how we arrived at today in the mobile space. I recommend the read, but if 49 pages is too much to digest, here are some of the salient themes and informational bits.
There’s plenty more valuable data in the comScore report, so again, the free download is worth it. Although it’s a look back at mobile from last year, it also provides the clues to figure out what’s going to happen in 2012 and beyond.
