Day one of IDF Fall 2007 is over and I guess we can say that the 10th anniversary seems to be really remarkable. Of course, the news of the past day has truly contributed to it, but also a record-breaking attendance: they registered over 5000 people this time and claim they’ve got tremendous response from the industry. Well, judging by the crowd everywhere, I can say that it is probably true.
Today’s morning keynote was devoted to mobile revolution and breaking the barriers on the way to it. Dadi Perlmutter, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the mobility group spoke of the today’s changes in the mobile market and the new objectives on the way to further technological progress in this field.
The mobile revolution is here:
We see continuous increase in the share of notebook platforms in the market, and according to the chart above they will even outgrow the PCs in the nearest future. As defined at the previous IDF, there are four vectors of mobility that include performance, wireless computing, battery life and “cool factor” (small weight and size). Has anything changed since then?
The data on the chart shows that four out of five vectors of mobility remained the same, however, people start worrying more about data protection and antitheft security.
