Mobile – the attractions and the trends.
Why is mobile content consumption growing exponentially? There are many factors at play here – but lets start with the first premise of mobile. Yep, that is it – it’s mobile, portable, with you when you are out and about, commuting travelling, in waiting rooms, coffee bars, librarys – so whereas you once bought a paper at the station, boarded a plane with a chicklit that weighs more than your make up bag…now that super shiny Samsung Galaxy Note ( current aspirational device of choice ) slips into your clutch bag, or your briefcase, or even your pocket.
These handheld devices – neatly encapsulates tablets, pads and smartphones of all sizes – are able to provide literature, movies, photos, social sharing, reviews, price comparisons, maps, local search, shopping lists, mobile payments, updates, alarms, torches, spirit levels KK the list is a lot longer than this page and my attention span can stand.
So we have devices that deliver convenient content on demand. The rise in the popularity of e readers and the vast array of ebooks available grow the market in the same way that cheese and onion and salt and vinegar made the ready salted crisp market share evolve.
