The year 2014 is set to be an exciting one for mobile technologies. From the impressive range of new technologies and devices at the January 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, to the new devices and services expected from industry leaders such as Apple, Google, and Samsung, we will certainly be inundated with new technologies throughout the year. One of the sectors poised to particularly benefit is mobile technology. Everything from smartphones to laptops are likely to see significant advances over the next several months. Some of the biggest changes likely to come to mobile technology in 2014 include:
There are countless reports indicating that Cloud-based services are set to expand dramatically in 2014. One of the core functionalities of the Cloud is the ability to store information that is accessible from any device and from anywhere in the world. “Cloud storage is one of the key components necessary to make location-independence for professionals a reality,” Industry expert and entrepreneur Jason Hope of Scottsdale recently said. History is likely to prove him correct. An increasing number of users are requiring and demanding access to their files across multiple platforms. For many of them, there are logistical and security issues associated with carrying an external hard drive. In addition, an increasing number of laptops (and all smartphones and tablets) are switching to Solid-state drives. Solid-state drives, or SSD, are significantly faster than traditional HDD hard drives. However, SSD is more expensive, and therefore most laptops are trading faster access to stored files for a less overall hard drive space. Cloud storage, as it becomes more affordable and prevalent, will effectively make this problem moot.
Essentially all of the technology giants are getting into or are significantly ramping up their Cloud services and storage offerings. Google, Microsoft, Apple, and Amazon all have increasingly robust Cloud storage services. The victor in the Cloud storage battle will almost certainly be the company that is best able to integrate Cloud storage across multiple platforms.
