Future Trends in Mobile: Transition into Mobile

In Japan and in USA the large section of population has moved from desktop browsing to laptops and now to mobile phones. In not so distant future most of the following will be done on mobile:

- reading emails
- reading news via dedicated applications
- reading eBooks
- Web browsing**
- posts to Twitter
- updating Facebook and other social media*
- instant messaging
- contact and calendar management
- document management*

* If Facebook and Google Docs improve their native apps which as of May 28, 2011 are substandard to say the least.
** Mobile Web browsers have to be able to keep up with HTML5 & CSS support in Google Chrome which is leading the way at this time.
